Report: West Ham considering Chris Wilder and David Moyes

West Ham United could offer David Moyes the chance to return to the London Stadium should they sack Manuel Pellegrini, while the Hammers are also interested in Chris Wilder and Chris Hughton, according to a report from the Daily Mirror.

Pellegrini’s future with the Irons looks to be up in the air. They are just three points off the relegation zone, and his side have not won since September, losing six of their last eight.

The Daily Mirror reports that the West Ham hierarchy would prefer to hire a British coach if they let Pellegrini go. And it appears that they have a number of names in the frame.

The Mirror reports that Sheffield United boss Wilder is on their radar. Meanwhile, they are also interested in Moyes and Hughton, who are both currently out of work.

The candidates

Wilder would arguably be the most popular option. He has worked wonders at Bramall Lane and the Blades sit sixth in the Premier League following promotion. The style of play that United play has also seen Wilder receive a lot of plaudits.

Moyes would be an intriguing appointment. The Scot kept the Hammers up during his brief stint in charge in the wake of Slaven Bilic’s exit. And it is probably fair to say that he won over a number of supporters.


However, despite overseeing a turnaround, there did not appear to be too many who were disappointed when Pellegrini was announced as Moyes’s successor.

Hughton meanwhile, did a fantastic job for the majority of his time at Brighton. But, again, there did not seem to be much discontent when his departure was announced. Many Seagulls fans seemed to feel that a change was needed.

It would be little surprise if plenty of West Ham fans had reservations about the likes of Moyes and Hughton. But there is likely to be a lot of agreement about Pellegrini’s future if the club’s losing run continues for much longer.
