West Ham United manager David Moyes has left the club after talks with the Hammers board, according to a reliable journalist.

Pete O’Rourke, a man in the know on all things football made the claim via his official Twitter feed where he wrote: “Hearing David Moyes has left West Ham after talks with the club today. #WHUFC.

Moyes only arrived at the London Stadium in November following on from Slaven Bilic’s sacking from the club and was handed the task of maintaining the club’s Premier League status.

However, despite guiding the club to a 13th place league finish it is looking as though his contract will not be extended after it expired at midnight on Sunday night.

Football Insider verdict:

While some might say that Moyes’ departure is a surprise given the club’s mid-table finish, just a couple of games ago, the club had been cast right back into the thick of the relegation battle and it looked as though they might have struggled to survive. The Hammers have been no better off in reality than they were under Bilic’s reign so if the Scot will not be staying on in East London then it isn’t a shock. An initial upsurge in form in the aftermath of Moyes’ takeover led to expectations that he would be given the role on a more permanent basis, but on the whole performances and results have been below par. All this comes after the Irons were linked with a move for former Watford manager Marco Silva who left his role at the Hornetsafter being pursued by Everton who wanted him to replace Ronald Koeman following the Dutchman’s exit from Goodison – if the news is correct then this would seemingly pave the way for Silva to come in at West Ham.
