West Ham plan to quickly reinvest the cash raised from Grady Diangana's sale.
The London Evening Standard says West Ham are ready to back David Moyes after sanctioning the sale of youngster Diangana to West Brom.
The two clubs have agreed a deal which could reach £18million after add-ons, while personal terms are not expected to be a problem.
Following a string of sales, the club are now ready to back their manager. The funds from the sale of Diangana are set to be reinvested, with defenders and another forward the targets.
West Ham have long been looking to bring in new faces at full-back and, alongside Newcastle, are taking a keen interest in Bologna's Japanese international Takehiro Tomiyasu - who can also play in central defence or holding midfield if needed.
Moyes will also look to add an experienced centre-back after missing out on Shane Duffy, who has signed for Celtic on loan.
