David Moyes has long been linked with a return back to Everton after the departure of Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid. But Moyes has put these rumours to rest as he signed a new 3-year deal to stay on as the manager at West Ham.
Moyes was reappointed as the West Ham boss in December 2019. He helped transform the Hammers from relegation contenders in the 2019/20 season to knocking on the doors of Europe this season.
He guided the club to their second-best Premier League finish in history this season, as the London side finished sixth in the league table and qualified for the Europa League.
Now an agreement has been finalised, which will tie Moyes to West Ham until 2024. Moyes was linked with Everton at end of the season where he spent 11 years of his managerial career.
Moyes also confirmed just before the end of the season he was close to finalising a deal, one that would trigger a recruitment process. West Ham are hoping to strengthen the team and add players to improve quality and squad depth following their unexpected success. Jesse Lingard who was on loan from Manchester United at the London club is rumoured to be a key target.
“I am not asking for time,” Moyes said. “I don’t think any manager can ever ask for time. But I think if you’re ever going to give a manager time, it would be now, where somebody has come in and saved the club twice, had one year and got ourselves in a position where we are going to challenge for Europe.”
