Moyes preparing backroom team

David Moyes says he is yet to confirm his new backroom squad, on the day he was appointed as West Ham United's 16th full-time manager.

The 54-year-old flew into the UK from the Middle East last night in order to complete his appointment - whilst the search for bak-up staff is already under way.

"There's room to bring some people in, so I want to bring in people I know and trust and who know how I work," he told whufc.com.

"We need to hit the ground running and we need to start getting results very quickly - so I want people who can do that.

"I've also got a couple of coaches in mind who I hope to be able to confirm maybe by the end of the week, or certainly by next week, whether they'll be joining us also."

One of the names on Moyes' radar is former Hammer Stuart Pearce, who is set to be approached with view to taking up a coaching role. And it's a role that, according to Pearce, he would be interested in.

"Iíve had no contact with West Ham if thatís what you mean," the former England U21s manager told TalkSport this morning. "But if I had contact, I would certainly go and talk to them."

Meanwhile Alan Irvine, who was most recently caretaker manager of Norwich City is expected to join up with Moyes at Chadwell Heath later today.

The only member of Slaven Bilic's support team to avoid the chop yesterday was goalkeeping coach Chris Woods, who previously worked alongside Moyes at Everton and Manchester United.
