By John Reid

West Ham manager David Moyes is only in his position until the end of the season as West Ham wait for Quique Sanchez Flores to become available, according to a report.

The Spanish newspaper Sport is reporting that West Ham’s owners want current Espanyol and former Watford boss Flores to take over at the end of the season.

Flores did very well in his time at Watford, guiding them to Premier League safety and an FA Cup semi-final before he left the club in 2016.

He currently has Espanyol in 13th place in LaLiga, seven points clear of the relegation places.

Before managing in the Premier League, he managed the likes of Valencia, Atletico Madrid and Benfica, winning the Europa League with Atletico in 2010.
