West Ham No2 Pearce: This summer we must get the recruitment right

West Ham No2 Stuart Pearce says they'll be cannier with their spending this summer.

He says there will be no big-money gaffes from West Ham this summer — regardless of where they finish.

Pearce told The Sun: “The important thing is we get the recruitment right.

"Back in January, people were criticising us for not bringing in a striker — yet with four games to go it has not affected us.

“If they are not the right fit, we won't spend the money just to tick a box.

“Sometimes it's the toughest thing not to buy players — especially when everyone is telling you that is the best thing to do.

“I don't think the squad will get carried away wherever we finish in the league this year. We know it is still a building process."
