West Ham United have reportedly decided to make changes to their transfer policy, with a director of football due to be appointed in the summer.
At the weekend, a section of West Ham's supporters protested against a perceived lack of investment since leaving Upton Park to move to the London Stadium.
Much of West Ham's spending in the transfer market has been offset by player sales, and the topic is allegedly keeping manager David Moyes from committing to a longer contract at the club.
However, according to the London Evening Standard, co-owner David Sullivan has agreed to take a back seat in transfer negotiations, a move which has been agreed by fellow co-owner David Gold and vice-chairman Karren Brady.
The report suggests that a director of football will not be appointed until the club is aware of what division they will compete in next season and until Moyes's future at the East London outfit is resolved.
West Ham currently sit in 16th place in the Premier League standings, just two points above the relegation zone.
