Moyes: thanks but no thanks

David Moyes is set to quit his role as manager of West Ham following this afternoon's Premier League encounter with Everton.

Moyes, who has only been in the job for six months since replacing the sacked Slaven Bilic on a temporary basis is set to walk away from the club after becoming disillusioned by the lack of support from the Boardroom and negative "culture" at the club.

Only last week he hit out at the constant leaks, primarily via social media, that undermined his position as manager of West Ham.

And the former Man Utd and Sunderland boss has also fallen out with members of his squad, including Andy Carroll who was sent home early from training following a training ground bust-up.

Front runners to replace Moyes when his departure is eventually confirmed are Fulham's Serbian manager Slavisa Jokanovic, Newcastle's Rafa Benitez and Manuel Pellegrini, who is currently contracted to Chinese Super League side Hebei China Fortune.

One other preferred candidate, Roberto Mancini is expected to be named as the new Italian national coach, having left Zenit St Petersburg within the last 24 hours by mutual consent.
