The Hammers boss extends his stay at the London Stadium for another three years.

David Moyes

has agreed to sign a new three-year deal with

West Ham

. The 58-year old was praised for his side’s performances last season as they finished sixth in Premier League. The Hammers started the contract negotiations before the end of the season as they were determined to keep the Scot. Moyes emerged as a candidate to replace

Carlo Ancelotti



, but he eventually decided to stay at the London club.

“I am delighted to have committed my future to West Ham United,”

Moyes told West Ham’s

official website


“This is where I want to be and I’m happy. I’m excited to be given this opportunity to build on what we all have already achieved here. The owners and I are fully aligned with how we want to keep developing and improving the football club.

“The Board and everyone at the Club have been fantastic to work with, giving me great support and I feel that we are all united in what we want to achieve in the coming years and how we might be able to achieve those things.”

West Ham also confirmed that Moyes' long-time assistant

Alan Irvine

will move into a technical advisory role from the next season. The manager is determined to pursue the club’s ambitions in the upcoming season.

"We have made tremendous progress in the past 15 months and that has been a collective effort from everyone at the club,"

the Scot added.

"The players really have been superb but the challenge is for our standards to continue developing."

West Ham’s activity in the transfer market will be affected by their players’ performances in EURO 2020. The club have reportedly received multiple offers for

Declan Rice

, but they are expected to keep the player unless they get 'a Bank of England offer' for him after the Euros. Moyes is also interested in signing

Jesse Lingard

on a permanent contract, but a deal is unlikely as

Manchester United

are keen on re-integrate him in their squad for the next season.
