West Ham boss Moyes warns Newcastle: Buying the best players won't make the best team

West Ham boss David Moyes insists Newcastle's new wealth won't guarantee success.

Moyes insists the Premier League is too competitive for Newcastle to suddenly start dominating.

He said, "I don't think there's any quick situations for any of the clubs now. I think the Premier League is too strong, too powerful. Why, suddenly spending a load of money, do you think they are going to become the top? I personally don't see that. I might be proved wrong in time.

"Building a club like I want to do at West Ham is what I probably do best, if I am being honest. I can see where the growth needs to come and what we need to improve a little bit more.

"And Everton was great. Bill Kenwright said to me when I took the job 'David you have got £5m a year to spend no more and that's what you can get. Do you want the job?' And I said: 'As long as you don't sell any of my players unless we have no choice and you let me do what I want with the players. I can prepare them, I can take them wherever I want in the world, I can do what I want'. And Bill says 'Deal'. Sometimes you have more enjoyment out of building from not having big money.

"I think we have seen maybe West Ham a couple of years ago, to be fair the owners here backed it. They went to spend the big money they tried to do it. I am not sure the Premier League allows you to do that because of the quality of the sides and because of the stability of the clubs. There are too many good clubs who are run superbly well. Yeah, come in and buy all the best players in the world but I am not sure that gets you the best team."
