A reporter with very close links to West Ham United co-owner David Sullivan has just made a huge FFP claim.
West Ham have been pretty shrewd with their finances over the past few years, with Declan Rice’s £105 million move to Arsenal in the summer easing any FFP worries we may have had.
That said, Everton’s recent point deduction due to their breaches of Financial Fair Play rules has given the Hammers reason to be concerned – a punishment that former West Ham director Nick Igor played a key role in enforcing.
West Ham boss David Moyes has spent plenty of money over the past few years at the London Stadium, with the best part of £200 million being splashed out on Lucas Paqueta, Mohammed Kudus, Edson Alvarez, Gianluca Scamacca and James Ward-Prowse.
So is FFP a concern for West Ham, with the Premier League authorities seemingly ready to come down hard on any clubs that are falling foul of the rules?
We obviously want news singings but the future of our club is far more important, that goes without saying really doesn’t it.

West Ham reporter makes big FFP claim
Whetstone took to his Twitter account this morning to provide a detailed update on our current Financial Fair Play situation.
And the Hammers reporter explained exactly where we currently stand financially:
That’s great news isn’t it. We’re £25 million on the right side of the FFP danger zone, so all is good it seems.
With that in mind, we should have some cash available to spend in January – something that a top source inside the London Stadium has already told Hammers News.
Moyes could do with signing a left-back, a right-back, a defensive midfielder, a left winger and a striker in order to complete his squad.
It obviously won’t be possible to make all of those signings in the January transfer window. However, it will be great if we can get a leg up ahead of the summer window by bringing in at least one new player this winter.
And it seems as though West Ham will be in a strong position to do just that given our current FFP situation.
