Report: Two-year offer on the table for West Ham supremo, with one big proviso
West Ham United’s board will offer David Moyes a new two-year contract this summer after impressing the powers that be at the London Stadium, according to a report.
The Express has revealed that the club are happy with the work the Scot has done so-far since joining them following the sacking of Slaven Bilic in November.
And as long as he maintains the Hammers Premier League status, they will offer him the extended terms.
When the 54-year-old was appointed the West Ham manager, it was agreed only on the terms of a six-month deal, in order to steer the club out and away of the relegation zone.
And that was what initially happened – a run of results saw the Hammers propel themselves up the table before dropping back down lately.
But a 2-0 win against Watford last time out in the Premier League calmed any immediate concerns of a return to the bottom three and they are now four points clear of danger.
The Scot has had to deal with a number of issues off the field – injuries have hampered their progress under his tenure.
Marko Arnautovic, Andy Carroll, Manuel Lanzini, Pedro Obiang have all been crocked for periods this season.
And only on Tuesday, the club were hit with a misconduct charge on the FA’s whereabouts rule due to an administrative error.
The Hammers return to league action this weekend with a difficult trip to Liverpool and will know that if they can get anything out of the game against the high-flyers, it will be an added bonus.
