Moyes 'here to stay' as three new West Ham hires revealed - pundit

David Moyes is leaving his mark on the backroom staff at West Ham – and that proves he is “here to stay” for some time to come.

So says ex-Premier League goalkeeper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about Moyes’ future at the London Stadium.

This site revealed on 10 November that the club has reached agreements for Moyes’ son, David Moyes junior, and George Santos to be added to its recruitment team.

Football Insider also broke news on 6 November that the Hammers had opened talks with Mark Robson to become their new under-23s manager.

The club confirmed six days later that the ex-Peterborough United assistant has joined the club.

The three new hires are indicative of Rob Newman’s expanding influence at the club since he was named head of recruitment on 1 October.

Kenny also detected Moyes’ hand in the new appointments and claims they are a sign he is in East London for the long haul.

“I just think this shows he’s here to stay,” he told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.

“George Santos played for Sheffield United. I met him a few times at training but there wasn’t much overlap there.

“If you’re David Moyes, why would you want to leave anyway? What a start to the season he has had.

“They are 3rd in the league and they’ve only lost two. One of those was against Man United in the last minute.

“Getting his son and Santos tells me that he’s in it for the long haul and will be there for a while now. It’s a huge club as well.”
