This comes after Ex recently co-hosted the latest episode of The West Ham Way Podcast where he spoke about a number of topics concerning the east London club.
On the subject of Moyes and the possibility of him putting pen to paper and signing a new contract at the club, Ex had this to say on the matter. (1.06.27)
He said: “David Moyes, in terms of his contract, he’s in no rush himself to sign it. Now the board do want to give him a new contract, but he has said, ‘look, I’m in no rush, I’m not going anywhere, we’ll talk about it at the end of the season.’
“And actually, he does have a one-year automatic renewal anyway, that the club can trigger, so at the end of the season, they can trigger for him to stay that extra year, but I think they’d want to negotiate something a bit more substantial in recognition of the work that he’s done.”
Moyes’ second spell in charge of the east London club has seen him take charge of 51 matches across all competitions in which they have won 22, drawn, 11 and lost 18 along the way (per Transfermarkt).
TIF Thoughts on Ex’s comments on Moyes and a potential new contract for him at West Ham…
Given how the 57-year-old has guided his team to fourth place in the Premier League table at this moment in time, ahead of the likes of Chelsea and Liverpool, it’s understandable why Ex thinks the board members at West Ham would want to offer Moyes a new deal to keep him at the club for a longer period of time.
Do you think Moyes deserves to be offered a new deal at West Ham?
In our view, with West Ham having won more games in the league so far this season than they have drawn and lost put together, and picked up more points this season than they managed to do throughout the entirety of the previous campaign, Moyes deserves to be recognised for the progress that has happened with the team so far.
