Fresh claims over Moyes West Ham future

Fresh media reports today suggest the West Ham board will hand David Moyes a two-year contract extension if he keeps the Hammers in the Premier league this season. The claim was made by the Daily Express and repeated by the Daily Star.

The Express says “The Hammers’ board though have been impressed with his work since taking over, and provided Moyes can keep the club in the Premier League, they are ready to offer the former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland manager a two-year deal this summer.”

West Ham released a statement in early Feb saying “The Club would like to place on record that it categorically refutes the claims made by the Daily Telegraph regarding manager David Moyes. There is absolutely no truth whatsoever to this story. As previously stated on a number of occasions, the Club and David Moyes agreed a deal until the end of the 2017/18 season, at which point both parties will sit down and discuss the future. Until then, the Board and David Moyes will continue to work closely together with the Manager having full responsibility of footballing matters and the full support of the Board. Everyone’s sole focus is on trying to achieve results for West Ham United.”

Club insiders insist nothing has changed from the earlier statement and that no decision has been made either way at this time by either party.

  1. The Media need a serious talking to ,,,, always spreading rumors and half truths of Thier own invention to promote speculation and then say ; exclusive , you heard it here first . Good to see West Ham trying to ignore the media circus . Sullivan & Gold are on a massive learning curve right now . Hope they don’t bite and slip off . Any Summer dealings should be held as close to the chest as possible untill signings are confirmed . Keeping the Premiership guessing is the only road to take . Fans will complain about lack of movement and or information,,,, but hey , that’s how it must be for us . We must stop selling raffle tickets to the rest of the Premiership .

    • Well said Kevin .. And Ann summer dealings should be held very firmly for health and safety reasons, 😂😂

  2. The media are a pain. Even Moyes said that he has never experienced so many rumours during a transfer window and he was at ManU! A lot of our fans see all the links and stupidly believe them. It all results in disappointment and whipping each other into a frenzy on social media.
