David Moyes Set for Contract Extension After Taking West Ham

West Ham intend to dispel doubts about the future of David Moyes by concluding a new agreement with the Manager for a period of two and a half years.

Moyes’ current contract expires at the end of the season and there were few indications that the Club intended to extend his stay. However, recent performances have changed the mood at the London Stadium: West Ham have risen to sixth place after consecutive 2-0 victories over Arsenal and Manchester United.

Moyes can also point out that he brought West Ham their first trophy in 43 years when they won the Conference Europa League last season, while they also participated in the last 16 rounds of the Europa League.

However, the Scot has been under pressure for more than a year and was several times close to his dismissal last season. He was mauled for his pragmatic style of play, although he maintained good relations with the management.

All parties remain calm about the situation, with Moyes having repeatedly stated that he would be happy to wait until the New Year to negotiate a new deal. However, West Ham are ready to support him with a contract extension that will last until the end of the 2025/26 season.

Moyes has given them stability since his return to the Club and saved them from relegation four years ago. This is their third consecutive campaign in Europe and they have recovered well from the loss of Declan Rice to Arsenal.

Despite the tensions between Moyes and the Club’s new technical director, Tim Steidten, last summer, West Ham’s signing was successful. Mohammed Kudus impressed in strike and James Ward-proose and Edson Alvarez were reliable in midfield. Greek defender Konstantinos Mavrapanos scored a goal against Arsenal.

Earlier this month, Moyes suggested that the uncertainty in his situation could distract his players. However, he has kept his motivation and can be satisfied that his team is above Newcastle, United and Chelsea in the Premier League table.

Asked about his contract after his victory over Arsenal, Moyes said: “We still have a lot of time to talk about it. We are not in a particular hurry. We can do it when we’re ready. I’m enjoying my time.”
