Moyes too busy for contract negotiations

David Moyes has told the West Ham board he is too busy to conclude contract negotiations for a new management deal and he is relaxed about his his contract.

Moyes reached safety on 42 points last week therefore triggering an automatic 12 month extension to his existing contract.  Both sides are said to be happy with the other but there is no hurry to rush through a deal as a priority.

The Scotsman is set to be offered a two to three contract with an option of an automatic extension.

The West Ham board are delighted with the 57-year-old’s progress this season and have no plans to look at any replacements. Equally Moyes sees the Irons as his long term project and currently has no ambitions to take a role at a bigger club, even if he is made an offer.

In many ways the relationship seems a great match for both the club and the manager which is set to continue for many years.

  1. Let’s hope it is a long term appointment as Moyes appears driven to restructure the whole club not just the first XI.

    • Best manager since John Lyall, we’d be stupid not to give him a long term contract. We could always take a dip in form but in the long term with steady improvements I think Moyes will have us competing consistently for European places and cups.

  2. With the position that we’re in right now and the frequency of important games, I can certainly understand putting the contract talks aside for now….. The Spuds game this Sunday is the perfect example of why.
    This is a unique position for us, but we are extremely lucky to have a manager like Moyes who is old school in terms of honour and honesty and he will most definitely sign the contract come the end of the season…. and the owners?… They’d be idiots NOT to sign him up to a new long-term contract with all the bells and whistles.

  3. The pressure of replacing the management seems to have worked. Let’s focus on remaining on the Premier league.

    I am one who should bespoke should the former toffee boss guide our club to the European games! Champions league or Europa league football is on the project for the next 3 years! The club has been very impressed by the quality of the championship players! Lets go!
