David Moyes confident new deal will be agreed soon

Tue 18 May 2021 | 16:49

David Moyes' current contract expires this summer and he thinks he will reach an agreement with the club on a long-term contract. West Ham still have hope to qualify for European football next season.


We're pretty well down the line with my contract and I hope that we'll get something confirmed,

" Moyes told



"It is more likely to be after the end of the season before we do anything. We don't really want anything to get in the way of what we're doing just now."

West Ham were in the relegation zone before Moyes, but the 58-year-old kept the Hammers up and performed very well this season.

Although the Hammers lost the Champions League due to the poor results they have achieved in the last few weeks, they still have a very high chance of reaching the Europa League.

Moyes believes qualifying for the first season of the new Europa Conference League could not be a failure.

"I think I am really wary of a third European competition, you start to think about things like the Intertoto Cup which was around a few years ago.

"But I have got to say that if you are rewarded with European football for finishing high up the league, it is praise for you and it is showing the work you have done.

"If we end up finishing in that competition it won't be disappointing - but maybe next year if I am playing Thursday and Sunday I might think differently.

"I think if we made European football it would be worthy of celebration. You are always trying to get more and push up the league. We might enjoy a couple of beers if we make Europe after Sunday's game."
