Talks have reportedly collapsed between David Moyes and West Ham regarding a new contract, with his future at the London Stadium still up in the air.

The Scot is in his second spell as Hammers manager, having returned to the club back in 2019, but he has endured an up-and-down season to date.

Moyes famously won the UEFA Europa Conference League with the east Londoners last year, etching his name into West Ham folklore, but his side haven’t kicked on as some may have hoped in 2023/24.

Some of the peformances haven’t been up to the required standard, not least the woeful recent 6-0 defeat at home to Arsenal in the Premier League, and it has led to pressure growing on the 60-year-old.

Moyes is out of contract at the London Stadium at the end of this season, and according to Football Insider, talks over an extension have now been held back until the summer:

“Talks between David Moyes and West Ham over his future at the club have been put on hold until the summer, sources have told Football Insider. The 60-year-old Hammers boss is expected to make a final decision on his future at the end of the season.

“It is understood that his decision to stay at the club could hinge on their Europa League campaign with Moyes likely to sign a new contract if West Ham enjoy more continental success this season.”

This is actually arguably the correct decision by the club, allowing West Ham to gauge how Moyes performs in the next few months, in terms of the owners choosing if a change or manager is needed or not.

There are arguments to be made either way, with the former Everton boss such an experienced figure who it could be difficult to replace, with supporters only truly appreciating him after he is gone.

On the flip side, a section of the fanbase may feel that things have grown stagnant under Moyes, however, with a younger, more modern boss needed to take the team forward.

It is a decision that those high up at West Ham need to nail, in order to avoid the Hammers regressing after such an unforgettable season last time around.
