Spurs make £27m decision which proves David Moyes was right

Tottenham Hotspur’s recent £27m decision has validated David Moyes’ judgment regarding Arnaut Danjuma, highlighting that West Ham made the right call and Everton narrowly avoided a setback, writes the Hammer News.

During the January transfer window, the pursuit of Dutch winger Arnaut Danjuma by West Ham, Tottenham Hotspur, and Everton created a significant buzz. According to Hammers News, it was reported that Danjuma, a long-standing target for West Ham, had traveled to London for transfer discussions with clubs interested in acquiring him for the Premier League.

At the time, West Ham, Everton, and Danjuma’s former club Bournemouth were all reportedly competing for the signature of the Villarreal star. However, at the last minute and despite having verbally committed to Everton, Danjuma ultimately chose to sign for Tottenham, becoming their rival. David Moyes played a significant role in influencing the attacker’s decision to join Spurs.

West Ham supporters who closely followed last year’s summer transfer window will recall the strong links to former Bournemouth player Danjuma. Publications such as The Guardian reported that West Ham were making significant efforts to secure the signature of the Villarreal player. Numerous reports indicated that the deal was nearly finalized, but a West Ham insider refuted those claims, stating to Claret and Hugh that Manager Moyes was not fully convinced about the player.

The Daily Mail also reported that Moyes decided to abandon the move for Danjuma after determining that he didn’t quite fit the requirements of the Hammers, with concerns raised regarding his temperament. Danjuma’s agent, Michael-Moses Jarman, responded to these claims as they were echoed on talkSPORT.

Moving forward to the January transfer window, Danjuma, who had seen limited game time for Villarreal in the first half of the season, found himself once again linked with a potential move to the Premier League.
