That’s according to a report from reputable club insiders Claret & Hugh, who claim Moyes will pass on the Norwegian’s services despite being heavily linked for some time.
However, having failed to make an impact in eight appearances off the bench for the Toffees, Moyes’ interest is said to have cooled.
King’s form since his switch to Merseyside replicates his early-season struggles in the Championship, although many might’ve hoped he would rediscover his best.
Having been touted with a move to Manchester United less than 12 months ago, a season-long goal drought thus far and a Moyes snub is some fall from grace.
West Ham certainly need a new striker this summer but are correct to steer clear of King, whose career has frankly nosedived.
