Pardew seeking to address 'unfinished business'

Filed: Monday, 6th November 2017

Former Hammers boss Alan Pardew has revealed he is interested in the vacant West Ham manager's position.

The 56-year-old was in charge of West Ham between 2004 to 2006 but was fired by the club's new Icelandic owners following a run of eight successive defeats in all competitions.

However 'Pards' - as he was affectionately known by the West Ham fanbase - has privately revealed within the past 48 hours that he is keen to return to the club - although the chances of that appear minimal now, as David Moyes is set to be offered the position instead.

Pardew, who has been out of the game since leaving Crystal Palace last year is familiar with a number of West Ham's current squad having worked with the likes of Mark Noble, Andy Carroll, Michail Antonio and Jose Fonte in the past.

And the former midfielder has revealed he would be "100 per cent" happy to take the role on a temporary basis, according to a KUMB source, with view to agreeing a new contract should he keep West Ham in the Premier League this season.

Upon leaving West Ham mnore than a decade ago, Pardew - who is seen more frequently in TV studios these days than on the touchline - insisted that he would return to the club at some point in order to complete his "unfinished business".

Yet despite being available, it looks like he is set to miss the boat once again.
