On Friday, TalkSPORT reported the London club will officially announce Moyes’ new deal next week.
McAvennie claims Moyes is building something at West Ham and wouldn’t seriously consider a return to Goodison Park.
“No chance, that was never on the cards,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“He’s an honourable man. He loved his time at Everton but he’s got a new project at West Ham.
“Why would he go back and start again? He has a decent relationship with the owners at West Ham.
“I can understand why Everton want him back and why he may have even thought about it but he won’t have actually considered doing it.
“It looks like David enjoys London, he likes the boys. You can see they are turning into one of his sides.
“Why would you want to leave? Just, woah, I mean I don’t get that.”
Moyes managed Everton between 2002 and 2013.
He left Goodison Park for an ill-fated spell as Manchester United boss after Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
