Report: West Ham hope Moyes will stay amid exit links
West Ham are confident that David Moyes will choose to stay at the London Stadium, according to Sky Sports, despite links with former club Everton.
Carlo Ancelotti has left the Toffees without a manager. It was claimed on Tuesday that the Italian was set to make a return to Real Madrid.
It is an incredible turn of events. And it obviously means that one of the most high-profile posts in English football is set to become available – now Ancelotti has headed back to the Spanish capital.
One Premier League boss who knows just how prestigious the Goodison Park job is is, of course, Moyes.
The Scot spent more than a decade on Merseyside. And it appears that he is set to be in contention for a return of his own now that Ancelotti has left.
According to The Times, he is likely to be on the shortlist Everton put together for the role.
On paper, it is difficult to see Moyes wanting to leave West Ham for the Toffees after a campaign in which the Hammers booked a spot in the Europa League.
But given his emotional attachment to the club, Irons fans would be forgiven for being a little concerned that he could be tempted.
The good news is that it appears that the Hammers hierarchy are not worried.
According to Sky Sports, the club are confident Moyes will stay and sign a new three-year deal.
The report claims that talks are well advanced.
West Ham board have had warning with Everton links, and must back Moyes in the summer
As things stand, it appears that Moyes is set to stay with the Hammers. But the links should send out a message to the West Ham board.
If they do not back him in the market, he could potentially have attractive options on the table from elsewhere.
After the incredible job he has done, West Ham must not take Moyes for granted.
