David Moyes set to pen new West Ham contract today to end Everton speculation
David Moyes is set to put pen to paper on a new West Ham contract today (Friday) and end speculation about a return to Everton, according to the Telegraph.
The newspaper reports that on Thursday, Moyes was on the brink of signing a new three-year deal at the London Stadium after a superb season with the Hammers in which he led them to Europa League qualification.
Moyes’ impressive job has led him to being linked with the vacancy at his former club Everton but it is understood that any prospect of him going back to Goodison Park will be ended by this new deal being signed today.
Here to stay
We cannot speak highly enough about Moyes.
Not everyone was too sure about the Scot returning to East London in the middle of last season to replace Manuel Pellegrini but we have to say, it’s been a masterstroke of a decision by the owners.
Moyes not only led us to safety and avoid relegation to the Championship but he then managed to take that team, without adding too many players, and take them to finish just outside the Premier League’s top-four this season.
We almost qualified for the Champions League – people don’t talk about that enough.
Moyes deserves his three-year contract and we hope he continues to impress us at the London Stadium this season.
Our aims should be to qualify for Europe once again, reach the latter stages of the Europa League and win a domestic cup.
If we can do that, Moyes will go down as one of the best modern-day mangers we’ve seen in charge of the Irons.
It’ll be tough but we think he can do it if he makes a few really strong signings over the coming weeks and months.
Unlucky, Everton. But he’s ours now.
