Sources: Big update on David Moyes potentially quitting West Ham after fall-out

West Ham have put talks over a new contract for David Moyes on the backburner until later in the season, sources have told Football Insider.

The 60-year-old’s future is up in the air once again after he came close to leaving during the off-season.

It is believed there is significant tension behind the scenes at the London Stadium – with Moyes and recently-appointed sporting director Tim Steidten coming to blows during the summer over transfer targets.

The duo are yet to completely iron out their issues, while supporters have also targeted the manager for criticism over what they claim is sterile football stepped in negativity.

The Scot is currently out of contract at the London Stadium at the end of the 2023-24 campaign.

Moyes has attracted heavy criticism after West Ham lost three consecutive games in the space of seven days against Aston Villa, Olympiakos and Everton.

The Irons sit ninth in the Premier League having picked up 14 points from 10 games.

Moyes led West Ham to their first major European triumph just months ago, lifting the Europa Conference League trophy after beating Fiorentina in Prague.

He has made the Londoners a fixture in continental competition in recent years, achieving sixth and seventh-place finishes in the 2020-21 and 2021-22 campaigns.

The disappointment of last season’s 14th-place finish will have been tempered by the Irons’ success in Europe.

Moyes, who had a previous spell at the London Stadium between 2017 and 2018, returned to the club in December 2019.

He has won 88 of his 191 games in charge of West Ham – a win percentage of just over 46%.

The Irons are next in action against Arsenal in the League Cup on Wednesday (1 November) before facing Brentford in the league on Saturday (4 November).
