David Moyes shut down his exit rumors from

West Ham

amid Celtic links saying that he has

“no intention of going anywhere”


The Scot, who has helped the Hammers secure a top four spot in the

Premier League

table, talked to reports ahead of their Saturday clash with

Manchester City

, saying:

“I have no intention of going anywhere.”

“I have spoken to David Sullivan but I don't want anything to get in the way of what we are doing right now.”

“I am really happy because there have been great improvements here at West Ham and, hopefully, we can continue the improvement here.”

Moyes’ current contract is expected to expire in the summer leading Celtic to target him as a potential replacement for Neil Lennon, but West Ham hope to extend his 18 months stay with another deal as he seems eager to open contract talks with the English club.

West Ham currently sit fourth in the Premier League table with only two points ahead of


and nine points away from the ninth placed 



Asked about their challenge in the current season, Moyes responded:

“We're going to try and keep going one game at a time with small, different goals.”

“We've got ourselves in a really good position and are now being talked about as a European side which is a remarkable turnaround.”

“We want to try and hang in there. This is something we should be enjoying, praising the players for their efforts and the club for the way they've gone about their business. It's a good period for West Ham and West Ham supporters.”
