West Ham have confirmed three more pre-season friendlies for this summer as David Moyes plots his preparations for European football.

The Hammers will face Northampton, Leyton Orient and Reading before travelling to Celtic for a friendly on July 24, which was confirmed earlier this week. All four fixtures will be away from home.

As they did last summer, West Ham will split their squad in two for a double header against Northampton and Leyton Orient, with both games kicking off at 7pm on July 13.

West Ham will then face Championship side Reading at the Madjeski Stadium on July 21, with the game kicking off at 7pm.

The club have confirmed that, should government restrictions allow, they will be given an allocation of away tickets for all four pre-season games that have currently been scheduled.

Moyes's plans for pre-season begin in the same fashion they did last year, with a trip to St. Andrews in Scotland for a week-long training camp.

The Scot has previously cited that week last summer as a key factor in their success over the past season.

West Ham are expected to announce further pre-season plans in the coming weeks as they prepare for the new Premier League campaign, which begins on August 14.
