Moyes reveals job offer

David Moyes claims that he was offered a job at another Premier League club - after having taken the vacant position at West Ham.

The 55-year-old's future is currently uncertain, despite having achieved the target of Premier League survival, set of him by the club's Board upon his appointment last November.

However Moyes - who KUMB understands were approached by relegated Stoke City - says that it is "not a problem", should West Ham decide not to offer him a contract extension - although he confirmed that no talks will take place until after the season has concluded this weekend.

"I could have joined a Premier League club during the season here, when I was West Ham manager," he said. "I chose not to. But I've got other things if it's not renewed. It's not a problem.

"We have always said we will talk after the end of the season so we will wait until then. It's always the way I wanted it and I won't change my views until we get the last two games out of the way.

"We are putting things in place, like pre-season, as much as we can, but ultimately I have got a decision to make - and the club has as well."

West Ham face Moyes' former club Manchester Utd at the Olympic Stadium this evening before the season culminates with a fixture against another of the manager's former clubs, Everton, on Sunday.
