West Ham, has had many frustrations with how the club has been run. The club’s latest decision to sell the young and very talented Grady Diangana to West Brom has caused a lot of anger.
The Hammers have made just one addition so far this summer, and that was to make Tomas Soucek’s loan move permanent.
David Moyes’ side will be looking to improve upon a 16th place finish with the same squad from last season.
Newcastle have so far enjoyed a solid summer of business. Callum Wilson arrived at St James’ Park as Newcastle looks to address the issue of striker which has caused them problems for many seasons. Wilson produced 24 goals and assists in the Premier League.
Last season, he struggled with injury and only managed nine goals, Ryan Fraser, Jeff Henrick and Jamal Lewis have also been added to the squad, giving Steve Bruce’s side plenty more firepower.
The Magpies finished the season 13th last season.
