Paul Robinson “cannot believe” West Ham have not yet tied David Moyes down to a new long-term contract.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs and England goalkeeper claimed the 58-year-old “hugely overachieved” in the 2020-21 campaign, in which the Irons secured Europa League football by finishing sixth in the Premier League.
Moyes’ contract at the London Stadium expires at the end of this month.
According to The Athletic, Everton have discussed re-hiring Moyes after Carlo Ancelotti left Goodison Park to return to Real Madrid yesterday.
Sky Sports claim the Hammers remain confident their manager will sign a new three-year contract extension, despite reported interest from the Toffees.
When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of Moyes’ future, Robinson said: “I cannot believe it has taken West Ham this long, I really can’t.
“Whether that is the club taking their time or Moyes himself not wanting to commit to anything before the end of the season, we don’t know.
“One thing is for sure, Moyes thoroughly deserves a new contract. He has taken a team from the brink of relegation to European football and that is certainly no easy feat. They have hugely overachieved this year.
“To give him a new long-term contract after securing a top six finish would be the only sensible thing to do.
“He has got things right on the pitch at West Ham and I think he will want to build on that now.”
