West Ham have tonight admitted to ClaretandHugh that they are still negotiating with two candidates for the manager’s position and that “no appointment has been made at this stage.”
Earlier this evening agent and friend of Bilic, Muzzo Oscan, tweeted that terms had been agreed for the former Hammer to become the club’s 15th manager of the club.
But when we put in a call to a top level insider we were told : “Talks are continuing. We are still in negotiations with two people. Slaven is marginally the favourite.
Oscan had tweeted: West Ham has agreed terms with Slaven Bilić wish my good friend a great season at West Ham ! And welcome to the East End.”
But our source added: “There is no contract in front of anyone at this stage but we are now very close.”
