West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has taken a new dig at Robert Snodgrass.
The midfielder is currently on-loan at Aston Villa.
Writing in her column for The Sun, Brady put forward her dreams for 2018 and listed a "successful transfer window" as chief among them.
"Yes, we've tried it before and sometimes it's worked," she wrote.
"Other times, there has been an element of 'We must do something, anything' — and we've paid for ill-fitting players.
"Robert Snodgrass wasn't exactly a triumph, while Hammers fans could name several foreign players who added little.
"The obvious fact is we need one or two who the manager believes will be a real plus.
"But no bargains that fall apart under the Prem's pressure."
