Slaven Bilic heads into his interview with the West Ham board ready to work on considerably less than the £2.9 million a year picked up by Sam Allardyce over his time in charge at Upton Park.
ClaretandHugh has learned that Bilic has arrived in the UK and that whilst the two Davids are likely to agree on an offer, vice chairman Karren Brady may have reservations.
However, his readiness to work on a sensible wage deal could influence things when they get down to making their crucial decision.
The board are always keen to agree on major issues but the impressive Bilic could easily bring them together in an interview setting.
However, with the board members possibly taking different positions the appointment is no a shoe-in after a series of setbacks in attracting a big name boss.
The big former central defender is keen to take over at the club and would work on as much as £1 million less than Allardyce.
But should he be turned down by the Irons board he will not be short of offers with Fenerbache and a couple of Premier League clubs rumoured to be interested in him.
Bilic though remains a massive fans choice to take over at the after collecting over 64 per cent of the vote in a ClaretandHugh poll earlier this week.
