West Ham United manager David Moyes is expected to remain at the helm for next season but that hasn’t stopped the club from “sounding out” possible successors.

Fans were uninspired to hear that the former Manchester United manager is set to stay on at the London Stadium and insisted that should he continue in the role they will flirt with relegation again.

The Hammers have been linked with a move for Marco Silva, who left his post as Watford manager back in January following his courtship of Everton, and Manuel Pelligrini who was recently sacked by Southampton after guiding the Saints into the bottom three.

Moyes only arrived in East London back in November in order to save the club from relegation and they now sit six points above the bottom three – 15th in the table at the point of writing.

After an initial boost under the Scot’s tenure, results and injuries have taken their toll and they have drifted back towards the drop to where they now find themselves.

The Hammers play the new Premier League champions on Sunday knowing that defeat will put them right back in the mix at the foot of the league.
