Report: Hammers ready to go all in on Moyes

MoyesmeetingWest Ham United have made a fresh move to try to secure an agreement from David Moyes to succeed Sam Allardyce as their next manager according to the Telegraph tonight (Thurs).

The paper says it understands West Ham have now made a more direct approach to Moyes after an opening gambit and that he is first choice to lead the club into the Olympic Stadium

West Ham hope their determination will see the Scot trigger an agreement with Real Sociedad that he can speak to Premier League clubs about a return to England – as revealed by ClaretandHugh.

The club has drawn up an ambitious list of summer transfer targets under the direction of recruitment director to the board Tony Henry, his former Everton scout and now the real power behind the Upton Park throne

As we explained in previous stories Henry,  worked closely with Moyes at Goodison Park. And he has already registered an £8 million bid for Sampdoria midfielder Pedro Obiang.

The Hammers are also interested in Real Madrid’s on-loan Champions League goalscoring hero Javier Hernández, Sion’s Moussa Konaté and Basel defender Fabian Schär.

Henry reports directly to Sullivan and Gold. and although sources insist that Allardyce’s future will not be decided until Sullivan and Gold have carried out their annual end-of-season review. Allardyce remains in the frame only as a back stop appointment should the Irons fail elsewhere.

But Allardyce’s chances of keeping his job have become slimmer with each week as West Ham have slipped from fourth to 10th in the table.
