David Moyes looks increasingly likely to extend his stay as West Ham manager in the coming months, according to an update from journalist Paul Brown.
The Scot is in his second stint in charge at the London Stadium, and he has done a superb job overall, not least winning the UEFA Europa Conference League last season.
There have been times when Moyes’ future has been called into question, with some results proving to be inconsistent, but overall, the positives have comfortably outweighed the negatives.
For that reason, it makes sense for him to sign a new deal at West Ham, with his current contract expiring at the end of this season.
Speaking to Give Me Sport, Brown claimed that Moyes looks likely to pen an extension in east London, in what represents a positive update:
“I think it’s only a matter of time really before Moyes does sign a new contract. He wants to stay, he feels like he’s building something for the future. Whenever we speak to him, he makes the point that he feels like a builder rather than someone who is going to bring you instant success.
“He has actually made West Ham pretty successful with the European trophy, and they’re pushing around the European positions again in the Premier League right now, but I think he has a long-term vision for the club. And I think if they’re patient and stick with him, he’ll have them consistently competing at the top end of the Premier League for many years to come, personally.”
This is a hugely encouraging news regarding Moyes’ future, with the 60-year-old such an impressive manager, building one of the strongest West Ham teams in recent memory.
Admittedly, there have been times when he has rightly been criticised because results haven’t been up to scratch, but it is hard to complain too much when the Hammers are sixth in the Premier League table.
They are also still in the Europa League, and if Moyes was to go far in that competition this season, it would only enhance his reputation as one of West Ham’s best managers of the modern era.
