West Ham manager David Moyes continues to do an impressive job in charge at the London Stadium, but a key update has emerged regarding his future.
The Scot is in his second stint managing the Hammers, and his popularity has grown among the supporters over the years, with plenty of success achieved along the way.
Last season’s UEFA Europa Conference League triumph was arguably the highlight of Moyes’ managerial career, and it etched his name into West Ham folklore.
The 60-year-old has built one of the Hammers’ most impressive teams of the Premier League era, with quality options all over the pitch, including the likes of Edson Alvarez and Lucas Paqueta in midfield, and Jarrod Bowen in attack, among others.
While all seems well with Moyes at West Ham at the moment, it looks as though his time at the club could possibly reach its conclusion at some point soon.
No parties are “in any rush” to sort an extension at the moment, after what is described as a “lukewarm” start to the season by the east Londoners.
It is a tricky decision that West Ham will have to make in the coming months, with Moyes clearly doing a good job overall, but also someone who those high up may feel has taken the team as far as he can.
At 60, he is now a veteran manager, and it may even be that the Hammers’ owners like the idea of bringing in a younger boss at the end of the campaign – one with fresh ideas and who can take the team forward into the future.
That being said, if Moyes were to sign a new contract as West Ham manager, it would likely be met with positivity with plenty of supporters, considering how much good work he has done in the London Stadium hot seat.
As the report alludes to, it looks as though things will be gauged by how the Hammers are faring as the campaign progresses, at which point it may become clearer as to whether Moyes is worth persevering with or not.
