Moyes wants to stay


David Moyes wants to stay at the London Stadium but has no interest in taking a job upstairs.  Interestingly, that comes from The Mail who originated the story that he could be offered a position maybe as director of football or a job title which hadn’t been revealed. Now, however, they are claiming on line that he has no interest in such a job and say claiming this comes from sources close to the 60 year old Scot who this afternoon bids to stop a run of five Premier League defeats when the team takes on Nottingham Forest at the London Stadium.

The Mail claims that although West Ham have not opened negotiations for a new deal, the manager has no plans to manage elsewhere with sources close to him suggesting he is bot interested   in taking on a director of football role.

Former Everton coach David Moyes has been manager of West Ham since December 2019

They add that he would prefer to stay at the club but that if  chief shareholder David Sullivan chooses not to keep him  he will look elsewhere for a managerial role in the Premier League.
After yesterday’s results the Hammers slipped into 13th position and a defeat by Forest would see the midlands outfit climb above them although they could climb back to 11th or possibly ninth if teh Chelsea and Brentford results go their way. The match kicks off at 2pm
