DAVID MOYES was surprised Jesse Lingard snubbed West Ham for a money-spinning move to Nottingham Forest.

The Hammers boss also admits he currently does NOT have a top six-level squad and is desperate to further bolster his side.

Lingard joined Forest as a free agent from Manchester United this summer on a one-year deal and is earning £115,000-a-week plus lucrative bonuses.

Moyes put a deal on the table to bring the midfielder, 29, back to the London Stadium after a successful loan spell in the second half of the 20/21 campaign.

The Irons believed the prospect of European football and challenging at the top end of the table would be enough.

But ultimately, the east Londoners were not prepared to cave in to the player’s wage demands.

Ahead of West Ham’s opener against champions Manchester City tomorrow, asked if he was surprised by Lingard’s decision, Moyes said: “I was, yeah.

“I thought Jesse in the end would come here and I've got to say the club made him a really good offer.

“You couldn't turn around and say David Sullivan and the owners didn't do everything they could to get him. They certainly did, but he chose Forest.

“He was entitled to do that.

“I've got to say the club have tried to get lots of players but for different reasons we've not been able to get them.”

West Ham are closing in on signing Burnley’s Maxwel Cornet in a £17.5m move, taking their total summer spend to around £100m alongside striker Gianluca Scamacca, midfielder Flynn Downes, defender Nayef Aguerd and keeper Alphonse Areola.

But they have also missed out on the likes of Frankfurt’s Filip Kostic and Lille’s Amadou Onana due to a break down in negotiations regarding financial packages.

On how shocked he has been at what players and clubs are demanding in today’s market, Moyes continued: “If only you knew. It's been incredible.

“We've made numerous, numerous bids. Genuine bids and genuine money and different reasons we've not got them.

“They've not wanted to come to the club or we've not got the financial deal right or we've not been able to pay the player and the agent.

“One way or another we've found it difficult to be competitive this summer.

We might have to take that risk. We didn’t sign anyone in January and we were two players short then.

“We don’t have a top six squad today. I’m working towards getting one before the end of the window.”

But Moyes has not closed the door completely on Lingard, adding: “You never know.

"If he scores 25 goals next year and does well, maybe I will. If he doesn't, maybe I won't.”

First, Moyes’ men must try to deny reigning champions City a winning start to the new season, and that means stopping new striker Erling Haaland.

Moyes laughed: “We are all watching this page to see how well he does.

"I am just hoping he takes a bit of time to settle in and he is not quite ready yet.”

Philadelphias Black And Mobile, 3 Years After Launch, Continues To Link Up With More Black-Owned Restaurants

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — August is Black Business Month. All month long, we are celebrating local businesses that are making an impact in the community. Meet the twin brothers behind the growing Black and Mobile delivery service in Philadelphia.

“We support Black people, the Black business, the Black community, the dollar circulation,” David Cabello said. “All of that.”

In today’s ever-growing food delivery industry, being mobile is important. But for twins David and Aaron Cabello being Black is essential. The 27-year-olds are behind the latest food delivery app Black and Mobile. They only deliver from Black-owned restaurants.

“We’re in five markets. We’re trying to get to about eight to 10 markets by the end of the year hopefully,” Aaron said.

“No, the end of next year,” David said. “Two more markets this year and next year.”

The brothers launched the service in 2019.

David worked in food delivery prior to founding Black and Mobile, but he says he began to notice a trend.

“The biggest thing was, how come I’m not picking up from any Black-owned restaurants? We rarely picked up from Black restaurants,” David said.

“If we don’t create the alternative option, they’re going to settle for what they got,” Aaron said.

Months after they launched, the pandemic hit. Lockdown orders forced people to stay home, which the twins say helped them grow. And then came the racial awakenings of 2020, including the police killing of Walter Wallace Jr. in West Philly.

Aaron and David say the social unrest that followed put a spotlight on their business in an unfortunate way.

“When bad things happen, people want to support more and I hate it,” David said. “I hate the fact that Black men have to be murdered or something bad has to happen for people to support Black businesses. It’s not right.”

Today, they continue to link up with more Black-owned businesses. They recently teamed up with Stripp’d Juice.

“The relationship has been short thus far,” Khoran Horn said, “but I got to say, I dig them like a shovel, you know? I do.”

Horn opened the restaurant in Old City in 2015.

After doomed attempts with bigger delivery services, they’re now partnered with Black and Mobile.

“They seemed very restaurant friendly and more so, they seemed very Black-owned friendly,” Horn said.

So friendly, drivers say they’re working with them hand in hand.

“We’re right there with them,” driver Jameel Braxton said. “They’re also still in the field working with you as well.”

In the past three years, they say they’ve gotten some pushback from bigger food delivery services, which they see as a good thing.

“The fact that we’re seeing that happen shows that we’re making an impact,” David said.
