With 16 games remaining this season, West Ham are gearing up for a crucial period in securing their managerial future. Under the guidance of David Moyes, the Hammers have indeed shown consistent improvement year after year. As a result, making the upcoming contract negotiations a top priority for the club’s board.
Moyes, who has been at the helm of West Ham’s resurgence, has seen his contract reach its conclusion in June, coinciding with the season’s finale. The club’s hierarchy is keen on avoiding the last-minute scramble for a new manager in the summer transfer window, and recent developments suggest they might not have to.
The Scottish manager, whose teams have consistently performed in the upper echelons of the Premier League, has expressed his commitment to West Ham’s future-
“We’ll get back on it now the transfer window is shut. We’re well down the line and moving on with it,” Moyes stated, as reported by the Daily Mail. “We’ll pick that up again in the next few weeks.”
This news is likely to bring relief to the majority of the West Ham supporters, who have witnessed the steady progress of their team under Moyes.

The prospect of a contract extension not only ensures stability but also provides a solid foundation for future success. Moyes’ teams have become a mainstay in European competitions, consistently qualifying and making their mark on the continental stage.
