With their rebirth under David Moyes, West Ham are pleased and hope to reward him at the end of the season with a new deal.

Moyes is approaching the end of his 18-month deal, and the desire is to give him a long-term contract, even if it requires an option for another year. The case is distinct from the first spell of the Scot at the London Stadium. While Moyes rescued West Ham from relegation in November 2018 after replacing Slaven Bilic on a six-month contract, at the end of the season, the board decided to move in a different direction, recruiting Manuel Pellegrini.

Senior West Ham figures agree that not keeping Moyes, who returned for a second spell after replacing Pellegrini in December 2019, was a mistake. West Ham lies seventh after staying up last season, two points behind fourth-placed Liverpool.

West Ham may already have given new terms to Moyes under normal circumstances. The financial effect of the pandemic, however, suggests that they are uncertain of what the former Everton boss will be willing to give to start talks now. They hope that in May the picture will be clearer.

Moyes is considered to be comfortable with the situation. Settled at West Ham, he provides them with welcome stability. He has made the team tougher to beat and has impressed in the transfer market with a small budget. Since entering, Jarrod Bowen, Tomas Soucek, Craig Dawson, and Vladimir Coufal have been outstanding.
