Jim White has shared that West Ham plan to keep David Moyes on as manager next season even if they get relegated, while live on talkSPORT.
The Hammers find themselves just one point above the relegation zone in the Premier League with 13 games remaining this season, and Moyes is under pressure from fans following the recent 4-0 defeat to Brighton.
But so far the board have stuck with the former Manchester United boss, and White shared live on talkSPORT (9 March, 11:23am) that the club have no plans on parting ways with him even if the worst was to happen.
“I spoke to your friend and mine this morning at West Ham,” he said. “We’ll call him a source, shall we?
“This source tells me that even if West Ham end up going down in the Premier League, the thought process is that David Moyes will carry on going into next season.”

Relegation from the Premier League this season would be an absolute nightmare for West Ham and the fans, but even worse than that would be Moyes sticking around afterwards too.
Moyes spent upwards of £170m this season on transfers in the summer and January after being able to guide us to a Europa League semi-final last season.
Yet somehow the team has gone backwards and the players have completely stopped responding to his instructions on the pitch which has led to horror results.
An obvious replacement isn’t there for him to go right now, and that’s why many fans have reluctantly accepted the fact he isn’t going anywhere any time soon.
But to let the whole summer go by without a replacement, especially if we were to get relegated, is just simply neglect of the club and the owners would likely have to deal with some very angry fans if it worked out that way.
