Moyes heading for big survival bonus

David Moyes is set to pick up anything between £1.25 million – 2.1 million if he saves the Hammers from relegation this season.

The 54 year old looks likely to secure the Irons Premier League safety after signing stay up a deal worth £15k a week plus the stay up bonus ahead  and new talks could lead to fresh one of two year deal at the end of the season.

The relegation safety deal is scaled up to a maximum of £2.1 million from the £1.25 million he would receive for  the Hammers securing 17th position.

Should he be successful – as seems likely – in keeping the Hammers up he is likely to pick up a new deal worth between £200k – £250k a month at the London Stadium next season.

However, both sides stress nothing has been decided at this stage and that talks will get underway in earnest at the end of the campaign assuming the Hammers retain their PL status.

  1. Should be linked to goal difference, then he would be owing the club money. Lets face it the only reason we are staying up is because at least 3 clubs have performed worst 2nd half of the season than us. This season points tally to stay up could have been achieved with Bilic still in charge because the reality is we aint really got much better since Moyes has been in charge. We may be fitter, we may look more like a team but we are still conceding too many goals, more worrying the amount of 3 or 4 goal defeats. If the board were not so inept I would suggest the look for a better manager first.

    • To be honest I don’t think we’d be in the same position if Bilic was still in charge, I think we’d be down if he was was still here and the change in management came at the right time. However i think under Moyes we have conceded 3 or more goals 7 or 8 times which is pathetic. I don’t think he should be in charge next season but he inherited a poor defensive team, we need a major overhaul all over even if Moyes is to stay! Serious money needs to be spent and players need to go.

      • Jack I would be the first to cheer if that so called “serious money” were spent.The team we have at present is pretty poor and is a legacy of seasons of miserly spending by Sullivan & Co.If this serious money isn’t spent and a clean out of the current list then next season we might be so fortunate to stay up.As for paying Moyes a bonus I think that is obscene.I would have thought that was his first agenda as manager.I look at former PL clubs floundering in the Championship and think are we the next like Birmingham?
