Wed 23 December 2020 | 7:03

Although West Ham announced the signing of Frederik Alves from Silkeborg on Tuesday, David Moyes doesn’t expect his club to delve into January’s transfer market but knows the owners at the club will help if required.

The 21-year-old Danish defender,

Frederik Alves

, will join up with the Hammers on January 2 as he’s signed a 4.5-year contract with the Premier League club. The 57-year-old manager said the defender won’t be the sign of a busy transfer window in his pre-match conference ahead of Sunday clash against



“As far as the January transfer window goes, we don’t have any real big intentions of making signings but if we need it, the owners have said they would help if we require it,”

Moyes said.

“Obviously that would be to do with injuries or anything else that crops up, so overall if we need it, we will try to go and get it, but we’re talking about January and it is not always a great market.”

West Ham

suffers from a lack of attacking options as

is sidelined because of a hamstring injury.

David Moyes

insists West Ham won’t rush a transfer if the deal wasn’t good enough for the club.

Moyes added:

“There is a good chance we would (go for a striker) because we have less options in that position, but it wouldn’t necessarily be there.

“We are continuously trying to build a good squad but more importantly a good team and where we are weak or short, we would probably try to look to get someone in.

“But not always can you get the players you want and not always are the players available (in January).”

The Hammers’ new signing established himself as a regular for


in recent seasons, although it’s not likely for him to be a first-team player, he is viewed as an addition for the future.

“He is a young boy from Denmark who we had our eye on in the summer,”



“He has come in for just over a £1million, so a little bit of business that will help us.

“We want to keep trying to add to our young players and make the squad younger as we go on.

“It is someone with potential, probably not for just now but a young player with a bit of potential and hopefully someone who will come good in the future.”
