A West Ham spokesman has dismissed reports that the club are already preparing for life after David Moyes.

The Telegraph reported yesterrday that West Ham were intending to part company with Moyes at the end of the season, regardless of whether the Hammers are relegated from the Premier League or not.

However a club spokesman today insisted that the story was wide of the mark and told the same source that no decision has yet been made on Moyes' future.

"As previously stated on a number of occasions, the club and David Moyes agreed a deal until the end of the 2017/18 season, at which point both parties will sit down and discuss the future," said the spokesman.

"Until then, the Board and David Moyes will continue to work closely together with the Manager having full responsibility of footballing matters and the full support of the Board. Everyone’s sole focus is on trying to achieve [positive] results for West Ham United."

Moyes, who has been in charge of West Ham since the beginning of November has taken charge of matches, securing just five wins (one of which came against League One Shrewsbury in extra time of a 3rd round FA Cup replay) from 19 matches.

* West Ham Utd have since released a statement in order to further clarify the situation with Moyes. "The club would like to place on record that it categorically refutes the claims made by the Daily Telegraph regarding manager David Moyes," it read.

"There is absolutely no truth whatsoever to this story. As previously stated on a number of occasions, the club and David Moyes agreed a deal until the end of the 2017/18 season, at which point both parties will sit down and discuss the future.

"Until then, the Board and David Moyes will continue to work closely together with the manager having full responsibility of footballing matters and the full support of the Board. Everyone’s sole focus is on trying to achieve results for West Ham United."
