On the subject of Moyes and the possibility of him signing a new deal at the club, Thomas had this to say on the matter.

He said: “David was asked about this last week at his press conference, and he said he’s hopeful something will be announced this week.

“I’m hearing that something should be announced, it should be this week, to be fair, and we’re hearing it could potentially be a three-year deal for David Moyes.

“I spoke to Kevin Nolan last Friday, he was saying [it was] in the final stages of negotiations for the contract so everything’s pretty much all but confirmed really, so that’s great news for the club, great news for the fans.”

Moyes’ first spell in charge of West Ham saw him take charge of 31 matches in which they won nine, drew 10 and lost 12 between November 2017 and May 2018. The former Everton and manager then returned to the club in December 2019 and has since taken charge of 64 matches across all competitions in which they have won 28, drawn 13 and lost 23 (per Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts on Roshane Thomas’ comments on a potential new contract for Moyes…

Given how Moyes has managed to take West Ham from avoiding relegation last season to securing a place in the Europa League this time around, it’s understandable, in our view, why the club are supposedly looking to try and tie Moyes down to a three-year deal given the progress he’s made with them.

Moving forward, if Moyes does sign a new deal at West Ham, the owners will undoubtedly be hoping that he can replicate or even improve on the season they’ve just had and keep them around the European places.
