David Moyes had already triggered a twelve month contract extension after leading West Ham United to a sixth place finish in the Premier League last season and now the Scotsman has now signed a new three-year deal in Stratford.
Moyes returned to the club in December 2019 after initially being replaced by Manuel Pellegrini in May of the previous year. To be honest no one would have dreamt that the former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland manager would have achieved what he has achieved this season and the hierarchy were left with little option but to extend his stay in East London.
Although Moyes will be on the lookout for a new assistant manager after it was confirmed that Alan Irvine is set to take up a new technical advisory role, first-team coaches Stuart Pearce, Paul Nevin and Kevin Nolan, as well as goalkeeping coach Xavi Valero will remain part of the 58-year-old’s backroom staff.
The club will find out key dates for the 2021/22 Premier League season when the fixtures are released at 9am on Wednesday morning.
