David Moyes will not be leaving West Ham United for a shock return to Everton.

Who is striker with superb scoring record being linked to West Ham?

That’s according to West Ham insiders Claret and Hugh and ExWHUemployee.

Moyes is a nominee for the Premier League manager of the year award after leading West Ham to their record Premier League points haul and securing Europa League group stage football for the first time.

West Ham fans await announcement of new Moyes deal

West Ham had been expected to announce that Moyes has signed a new three-year contract following such a successful season.

But speculation has been rife that the delay in a new contract announcement has something to do with Carlo Ancelotti’s now confirmed departure from Moyes’s old club Everton.

Everton have announced Ancelotti has left to return to former club Real Madrid.

And with Everton’s ownership proving more ambitious in the transfer market, West Ham fans are concerned Moyes might be lured back to Goodison Park where he spent 10 years.

Both insiders have insisted Moyes has already signed a new three-year deal which will be announced this week.

“David Moyes and West Ham have agreed a new three year deal which is due to be announced over the next few days…” Claret and Hugh report.

“And all that remains is for the paperwork to be completed before an announcement is made by the club.”

ExWHUemployee also took to The West Ham Way Patreon site to offer a similar update.

As of this evening West Ham are yet to announce Moyes’s new contract.

But Everton have confirmed the search is on for Ancelotti’s replacement.

“The club will begin the process of appointing a new manager immediately and will provide updates in due course,” the club said on Evertonfc.com.

A quick scan of social media reveals that West Ham fans are desperate for Moyes to stay.

And Toffees supporters feel the same with many not wanting Moyes back at Goodison.
