David Moyes: West Ham manager signs new three-year contract

Breaking news

David Moyes has committed his future to West Ham by signing a new three-year contract with the club.

Moyes, 58, had been in discussions with the Hammers over a new deal since the end of the season.

The Scot is in his second spell with a side he led to a sixth-place finish in the Premier League last season with a club-record points total, qualifying for the Europa League.

“I am delighted to have committed my future to West Ham United,” said Moyes.

The former Everton, Manchester United and Preston manager returned to London Stadium in December 2019 to replace Manuel Pellegrini.

Moyes led the Hammers to Premier League safety in a seven-month spell from November 2017.

Thousands of West Ham supporters protested against the club’s owners David Sullivan and David Gold last year, but Moyes says he and the board are “fully aligned” in their vision for the club.

“This is where I want to be,” added the Scot.

“I’m excited to be given this opportunity to build on what we all have already achieved here. The owners and I are fully aligned with how we want to keep developing and improving the football club.

“We have made tremendous progress in the past 15 months and that has been a collective effort from everyone at the club. We must keep pushing boundaries for consistent improvement as we all aim to continue the growing of the club.”
