According to reports from Mirror Football yesterday evening, former Manchester United manager David Moyes ‘looks certain’ to return to the Premier League with West Ham this summer.
The Scot has been in charge of La Liga outfit Real Sociedad since November following a horror ten months as Old Trafford boss, where he oversaw the Red Devils’ worst-ever league finish of the Premier League era – a miserly seventh-place.
But Mirror Football claim Moyes wants a move back to the Premier League as soon as possible to rebuild the reputation he gained from a successful decade as Everton manager.
They resultantly claim the 52 year-old now ‘looks certain’ to take the reins from Sam Allardyce as West Ham manager this summer. Allardyce’s contract is yet to be renewed past the end of the season and despite his continued insistence otherwise, an extended deal is incredibly unlikely.
Moyes would link up with Tony Henry, who currently serves as the Hammers’ chief scout and enjoyed a similar role at Everton.
