Report: West Ham eyeing 51-year-old previously deemed 'one of the best managers in the country'

West Ham United are reportedly planning to discuss David Moyes’ future at the club over the coming days.

And according to 90Min, Sean Dyche is a candidate to take over from Moyes in case the Hammers sack him.

The Hammers have lost six of their last seven league games and are level on points with the bottom two.

90Min claims the West Ham board will hold a high-level meeting before Saturday’s meeting with Everton.

And if they decide to replace Moyes, then Dyche is likely to be in the frame to take the reins, added the report.

West Ham target Dyche – factfile

Dyche famously kept Burnley punching above their weight in the Premier League for a number of seasons.

He got them promoted to the top flight in 2014 and again in 2016.

Although Dyche’s long-ball style of play at Burnley came under criticism, he suggested that this was a matter of pragmatism.

“If I went to a different club with different skill sets, trust me, I’d play a different way,” Sky Sports quotes him as saying in 2019.

In 2018, former Burnley coach Michael Jolley told The Coaches’ Voice he believed Dyche was “one of the best managers in the country”.

He’s got “fantastic instinct as a manager, but he backs it up with a process, and the people around him fully participate in that process.”

A good shout for West Ham – TBR View

West Ham enjoyed a superb season last time out, but it’s all gone wrong this term.

With the Hammers slipping into relegation trouble, sacking Moyes may well be the best course of action.

And Dyche would be a good replacement both in the short-term and long-term.

Short-term, he’d surely be able to drag West Ham out of relegation trouble by the scruff of the neck.

His track record with Burnley speaks for itself.

And in the long-term, Dyche can adapt, develop and refine West Ham’s game.
