Moyes leaves Hammers as Fonseca linked to job

Moyes leaves Hammers as Fonseca linked to job

The 55-year-old was an "unpopular" choice when he arrived at London Stadium in November, with the sole objective of ensuring the Hammers' Premier League status.

"I would like to place on record my honest thanks to David Moyes and his staff for achieving the target of keeping West Ham United in the Premier League", co-Chairman David Sullivan said.

West Ham said they hope to appoint a "high-calibre" successor within the next 10 days and have expressed an interest in Paulo Fonseca and Rafael Benítez, who might prove too expensive to prise away from Newcastle.

In echoes of Sam Allardyce's departure from Everton yesterday, many West Ham fans were not happy with Moyes as manager and it seems Sullivan and co-owner David Gold bowed to the pressure.

Moyes' assistants Alan Irvine, Stuart Pearce and Billy McKinlay have also left with immediate effect.

The Scot had guided the club to eight wins during his tenure, including success over Chelsea and a 4-1 thumping of the impressive Huddersfield, and nine draws, taking four points from games against Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United. Because, apparently, despite getting their respective teams to 8th and 13th in the league, neither Everton or West Ham saw the two of them as the long-term prospects.

"As we speak David Moyes is on the list of managers and we'll be selecting one in due course".

'He is a top manager and I think he'd have done a wonderful job for us, ' Sullivan said at the time. Moyes' reputation has been rebuilt somewhat after his debacle at Manchester United and Sunderland, so he may well be happy to move on.

Subsequent claims in the media say that Fonseca looks set to accept improved terms with Shakhtar where has won back-to-back domestic league and cup doubles.
