West Ham are reportedly edging closer to announcing David Moyes’ new contract…
That’s according to The Athletic’s Roshane Thomas, who delivered a fresh claim on a recent episode of the ‘U Irons’ podcast.
Speaking about the 58-year-old’s current situation, he said:
“David was asked about this last week at his press conference, and he said he’s hopeful something will be announced this week.
“I’m hearing that something should be announced, it should be this week, to be fair, and we’re hearing it could potentially be a three-year deal for David Moyes.
“I spoke to Kevin Nolan last Friday, he was saying [it was] in the final stages of negotiations for the contract, so everything’s pretty much all but confirmed really, so that’s great news for the club, great news for the fans.”
Moyes has completely transformed the Irons’ fortunes in the past 12 months or so.
Having steered them to safety with one game to go during the 2019/20 campaign, he has now guided them to the Europa League.
And he’s done so contending with regular injury problems, as well as a lack of backing in the transfer market.
For instance, the club’s hierarchy sanctioned the exit of club-record signing Sebastian Haller in January but failed to replace him, leaving Moyes with only an injury-prone Michail Antonio up top.
GSB also gave up on him during his first stint, so this is the least he deserves and it’ll merely continue an exciting era at the London Stadium.
Thomas has got his information from about as good an insider source as you could find, Moyes’ first-team coach Kevin Nolan, so something must be on the horizon at Rush Green soon.
This latest development signals a sign of encouragement that the club are moving in the right direction with some much-needed long-term stability, and that, as The Athletic reporter describes, is “great news for the fans.”
It could even give the East Londoners a huge boost heading into a pivotal transfer window. It’s a fantastic move from GSB.
