With three players confirmed to leave, and more speculated to depart at West Ham United, it is imperative that manager David Moyes now adds to the squad instead.

It was confirmed last week that, alongside Mark Noble, fellow Hammers Andriy Yarmolenko, Ryan Fredericks and David Martin will leave the club at the end of this month upon expiry of their contracts.

On top of that, loanees Alphonse Areola and Alex Kral will currently return to their parent clubs also, but the former is expected to sign with West Ham permanently.

This means that a squad of 24 senior players will soon be reduced to at least 18, which is just enough to fill a match day squad without injuries or suspensions.

With this in mind, amid speculation that other players could be sold, it is imperative that West Ham do not sell any more of the squad this summer.

With another European tour coming up next season and increased pressure to break into the top six, the Hammers will be stretched to perform even better than the last two campaigns.

However, the one issue that has let the side down in recent months is a lack of squad depth, which means a plethora of players will have to be added if we want to compete.

Reports have suggested that the likes of Said Benrahma and Tomas Soucek could be sold for the right price, but if we want to continue to succeed then we must hold onto these players.

The transfer window will be stressful for staff and supporters alike, but the bottom line is that signings will have to be made and no more players can be sold.
