West Ham manager David Moyes in talks for new contract amid impressive form

David Moyes is reportedly in talks with West Ham over a new contract with his current deal expiring at the end of the season.

Moyes has impressed during his second spell as Hammers boss with Monday’s win over Aston Villa taking them to fifth in the Premier League.

Moyes replaced Manuel Pellegrini last December and ensured West Ham remained in the Prem.

And Sky Sports claim that the club are in talks over a new contract with West Ham wanting to make sure he stays beyond the summer.

They add that Moyes now has the final say when it comes to transfers with the Hammers having had problems off the pitch in recent years.

Sky Sports add that there is a feeling that there is real progress since Moyes returned 12 months ago.

Signings such as Tomas Soucek, Jarrod Bowen, Vladimir Coufal and Said Benrahma have been crucial in the success with Moyes at the heart of them.

Talking about the potential of signing a new contract, Moyes said in October: “I have a really good relationship with the owners at the moment.

“I’m trying to move the club into a way that I see it. Like anything else, I'm on the phone and I speak to them most days.

“I’m not in any big rush and to be fair, we've won a couple games, we've got a draw and if we got 10 or 12 wins down the belt, and five or six draws and we've done really well.

“I want it to be something that's good for West Ham and it'll be good for David Moyes. I want us to feel that we're going in the right direction.

“Today it feels that way but as you well know, in this game, it can change very quickly.”
