David Moyes is set to sign a new three deal at West Ham United, according to Sky Sports. The contract recognises the progress he has made in his second stint as manager of West Ham where he led the London club to a sixth placed finish and qualification for the 2021/22 Europa League. The sixth placed finish also saw them finish above London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.
David Moyes Edging Closer to New Contract
Determined Scot Bouncing Back
Moyes became an Everton legend during his spell as manager between 2002 and 2013 but was burnt somewhat when he was the ‘chosen one’ to replace Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United in 2013- lasting just over a year after failing to gain European qualification.
Less than successful spells then followed at Real Sociedad and Sunderland before a first spell at West Ham where he led them club away from relegation before leaving at the end of the 2017/18 season when his contract ended.
His reputation was left looking less than favourable but the Hammers brought him back to the club in 2019 and he has exceeded expectations ever since- leading to a new and improved three year contract for the Scotsman.
West Ham have been keen to tie David Moyes down to a longer contract after he was linked with a return to Everton. The Toffees are looking for a new manager following the sudden departure of Carlo Ancelotti who returned to Real Madrid.
David Moyes Happy With Squad
Speaking to Sky Sports at the end of the 20/21 season, Moyes said he was happy with his squad and thinks they can continue to be successful: “If I have the exact same group of players next season I think we can continue to be successful. I am hoping we can add similar characters to the squad next season.”
With Everton’s owners not short of cash, there were some concerns from fans that he would be lured back to the club. The fact he has now signed a new deal with the Hammers is a signal of intent for stability at West Ham and few would deny that David Moyes’ new three year deal is well earned.
