Moyes to depart at end of season

David Moyes will almost certainly leave West Ham at the end of the season whether the club remain in the Premier League or not.

According to an article by Matt Law in the Telegraph, West Ham will almost certainly seek a new manager at the end of the season regardless of how the remainder of the current campaign pans out.

And Rafa Benitez, who has been on David Sullivan's hit list for the last three or four seasons is considered hot favourite to be offered the position - although former Hull and Watford boss Marco Silva, who is currently out of work, is also a candidate.

Moyes, who has improved the team's fortunes to a certain degree since succeeding the Slaven Bilic last November has steadfastly refused to talk about his future since joining West Ham.

Having failed to impress at Manchester United and Real Sociedad, both of whom fired him with 12 months of taking the job, Moyes was widely considered to be drinking at the last chance saloon when he joined Sunderland - from whom he resigned after failing to keep them in the Premier League last season.

His position at West Ham was therefore widely considered to be his last opportunity to impress as a top-flight manager.
