West Ham eyeing options to replace manager David Moyes – sources

Moyes has endured some difficult seasons but is certainly helping West Ham dig out from the bottom three.
David Moyes’ time at West Ham is running out.

David Moyes is set to leave West Ham when his contract expires this summer, with the club already looking at new manager options, sources have told ESPN FC.

The 55-year-old admitted he was unsure of where his future lies after West Ham’s 0-0 draw with Manchester United on Thursday, and Sunday’s clash against another of his former clubs — Everton — will likely be his last game in charge.

West Ham’s hierarchy are ready to bring in a new manager to replace the Scot at the London Stadium ahead of next season as they look to transform their fortunes, sources said.

Moyes is still expected to hold talks with West Ham officials early next week to discuss his future, though it appears the club will decide not to extend Moyes’ contract.

Moyes took over at West Ham from Slaven Bilic last November on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

The former Everton and Manchester United boss led the Hammers to Premier League safety after taking over when the team were languishing in 18th spot in the table with nine points from 11 games.

But Moyes has come in for criticism from some fans for his style of football, while he also recently had a much-publicised bust-up with Hammers striker Andy Carroll.
