It is as yet unclear what that means for David Moyes’s current assistants Paul Nevin and Kevin Nolan.
ExWHUemployee revealed that West Ham run the risk of losing Nolan and Nevin after just six months.
West Ham announced the appointment of former Hammers captain Nolan and Nevin as David Moyes’s new assistants back in February.
Future unclear for Nolan and Nevin
The club initially only appointed the duo until the end of the season – as revealed on whufc.com at the time.
Moyes recently told The Evening Standard of his desire to ensure Nolan and Nevin remain at the club.
“I also want to make sure coaches Paul Nevin and Kevin Nolan are here for next season, plus one or two other small changes I want to make around the club,” the Scot told The Evening Standard.
But according to reliable West Ham insider ExWHUemployee, both are attracting interest from elsewhere.
Ex says another of Nolan’s former clubs, Bolton Wanderers, want him to take a senior role.
While Nevin is reportedly wanted by Bristol City.
“Kevin Nolan and Nevin have both been tapped up by other clubs wanting them to come in as coaches and managers,” ExWHUemployee told the latest West Ham Way podcast (August 12th).
“Bolton were keen on getting Kevin Nolan involved and Bristol City were keen in getting Nevin involved.
“I think Bolton wanted to give Kevin Nolan a bit more of a senior role, but I can’t say for certain because I’m not entirely sure what they’ve offered him.
“But they’ve definitely been approached by other clubs so I think Moyes has got a bit of a situation where he needs to sort out his backroom staff.
“But with the tight budget I don’t know how many he will be allowed.”
Pearce appointment marks U turn from Sullivan and Gold
The re-appointment of Pearce marks an apparent U turn from unpopular West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold.
Speaking to talkSPORT back in January, Pearce said Moyes’s plan to bring him back into the Hammers fold for the Scot’s second spell at the club was blocked by Sullivan and Gold due to his criticism of them in the past.
“The owners felt I was a little bit critical of the regime when we left last time and put the block on it and that was that,” Pearce told talkSPORT .
