Report: Top-flight boss being lined up to replace Moyes at West Ham
West Ham United manager David Moyes is believed to be on borrowed time after it emerged the Scot is unlikely to be in charge at the London Stadium next season, according to a report.
The Telegraph stated that whether or not Moyes staves off relegation his days as the Hammers manager are numbered.
Newcastle United manager Rafa Benitez is mentioned as a target to take over the hot-seat in East London – but that is dependant on the takeover situation at St James’ Park.
Marco Silva’s name was also thrown into the hat and now that the Portuguese is out of work following his sacking from Watford, he would be available for nothing.
The former Everton and Manchester United boss only took charge of affairs in November after Slaven Bilic was given his marching orders.
And at the time Moyes was handed his opportunity to come back into the game, it was only on the basis of agreeing to a six-month deal which is set to expire in the summer.
A good run of form in the immediacy of the Scot’s takeover at the club led to many supporters thinking the contract could become a more permanent one.
But lately results have not been going their way and they now find themselves just three points above the relegation zone.
