I'm free from midnight, jokes Moyes

David Moyes was in high spirits during this afternoon's press conference - as he joked about being out of work by midnight.

Having secured seven points out of nine from West Ham's final three games of the 2017/18 season and engineered a 13th-place finish, Moyes - who is unlikely to be offered an extended contract - has every right to be pleased with his efforts.

And as he spoke to the media for possibly the final time as West Ham's manager, he was in fine form - despite facing the prospect of being unemployed again by tomorrow morning.

"I think [my contract expires] at midnight!" joked Moyes, asked when his temporary arrangement officially concludes. "So I'll take my suit off and undo my tie a little bit at midnight. I'll be back on the streets by tomorrow!

"I have other options, but I've had a really good relationship with the Board since I've been here. I speak regularly with them and from that point of view I'd like to change things - but maybe not everybody's happy with change."
