David Moyes has left West Ham after a six-month reign as manager, the Premier League club have announced.
West Ham said on Wednesday they hope to appoint a “high-calibre” successor within the next 10 days.
Moyes reached the end of his short-term contract with the club at the end of the season.
Joint-chairman David Sullivan said: “I would like to place on record my sincere thanks to David Moyes and his staff for achieving the target of keeping West Ham United in the Premier League.”
Moyes caused a stir this week by admitting he has had offers to leave the London Stadium and is looking at his options. However, we revealed that Sullivan has already decided that he wants a new boss at West Ham and has informed the Scot – who was only handed a short-term deal to the end of the season – his contract won’t be renewed.
Sullivan already has assembled a shortlist and we can reveal it includes Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez, Burnley’s Sean Dyche and Fulham chief Slavisa Jokanovic.
