A decision over David Moyes’ future at West Ham could depend on upcoming results, as the club weigh up a new contract offer for the Scotsman.

Moyes Willing To Commit His Future To West Ham

Sources suggest that Moyes is willing to commit his future to the Hammers, and that the expectation would be for a new deal that carries him through to 2026.

However, the combination of a bad run of form and supporter unrest could see said negotiations take time – especially if they lose again this weekend.

The board have been cautious over the timing of an offer, as they have remained open minded about possibilities beyond this season. West Ham have failed to record a victory in their last six games, so any deal would need to be timed carefully.

Board members recognise the job Moyes has done at the club after lifting the Europa Conference League title last term, but they are also considering the potential backlash to keeping him on.

Fans remain divided over the Moyes situation, and sections of support would prefer for the club to cut ties with the Scotsman at the end of this season over concerns of his playing style and whether the side are likely to progress any further.

Hammers Considering Fonesca & Carrick

Other managerial options being explored – believed to include Paulo Fonseca and Michael Carrick – have not led to further discussions as of yet.

At this stage, it is unclear how soon a new deal could be on the table for Moyes despite sources indicating to SportsLens that any new contract will be expected to cover the 2024/25 and 2025/26 seasons.

West Ham face Arsenal at the weekend and the impact of a win – or indeed a loss – could affect the pace of talks.

If the bad spell of results continues there is every likelihood of fans voicing their concerns about the prospect of Moyes staying beyond his current contract. Owner David Sullivan is having to weigh up the situation, even though he has been leaning towards handing him a new contract.

Moyes has continued to have some say on planning at the club and while he does not always see eye to eye with technical director Tim Steidten over potential signings, he has been keen to continue in his role at the London Stadium.

The January transfer window was a frustrating one for the club, as they did not secure a new attacker as they would have liked, but Moyes will want license to voice his opinions on additions for the summer window if he stays.
