David Moyes wants more control over transfers at West Ham.
The Scot has made just three signings since his appointment at the London Stadium in November.
In January, the Hammers landed 25-year-old striker Jordan Hugill from Championship side Preston North End for £8million, signed Portuguese midfielder Joao Mario on loan from Inter Milan and brought in Patrice Evra on a free.
It is widely understood that co-chairman David Sullivan holds a big influence over West Ham’s transfer business – something fans are desperate to see changed following a run of disappointing transfer windows.
And, speaking to talkSPORT host Jim White, Moyes revealed he is hoping to have the final say in the transfer market sometime soon.
“All managers at most clubs want to be able to make the decisions which they will be judged on, and I’m no different," said the Scot.
“I’ve worked with some great chairmen at the clubs I’ve managed – Bryan Gray.at Preston North End, Sir Philip Carter and Bill Kenwright at Everton – who all gave me the chance to do exactly what I think I needed to do.
“I think if you give managers that chance then it’s up them to do it.
“If that comes around for me [at West Ham], then great.”
