• Former Everton manager’s current deal expired on Sunday
• West Ham also looking at other options to replace Moyes
West Ham are aiming to end the uncertainty over their managerial situation in the next fortnight and will give themselves time to pursue other options before deciding whether to offer David Moyes a new contract.
An added complication, however, is that Moyes might choose to reject an offer from West Ham. The former Everton manager has expressed doubts of his own in the past fortnight and wants assurances that he will receive enough backing to challenge for a top-eight finish. Final talks are expected between Moyes and David Sullivan, the co-owner, in the middle of next week, giving both parties enough time to think things through properly.
