West Ham United have confirmed that David Moyes has left the club.

A brief statement posted via the club's website on Wednesday lunchtime thanked the 55-year-old Scot for his assistance, whilst confirming that he and his back room staff of Alan Irvine, Stuart Pearce and Billy McKinlay have also departed.

"I would like to place on record my sincere thanks to David Moyes and his staff for achieving the target of keeping West Ham United in the Premier League," co-chairman David Sullivan told whufc.com.

"Throughout his time here, David has carried himself with dignity and honesty and we have all found him to be a pleasure to work with. He, Alan, Stuart and Billy accepted the challenge and attacked it head on, turning around a difficult situation.

"They deserve great respect for the job they have done and they leave the club with our best wishes.

"When David and his team arrived, it was the wish of both parties that the focus be only on the six months until the end of the season, at which point a decision would be made with regards to the future.

"Having taken stock of the situation and reflected now the campaign is complete, we feel that it is right to move in a different direction.

"We are already taking steps to identify and recruit the manager we believe can take West Ham United forward in line with our ambitions. We aim to appoint a high-calibre figure who we feel will lead the Club into an exciting future for our loyal supporters within the next ten days."

"The Club will be making no further comment until a new managerial appointment is confirmed."
