According to a report from the Daily Mirror, West Ham reached out to Marco Silva, Manuel Pellegrini and Roberto Mancini with Slaven Bilic's future in major doubt, but all three managers offered the same response to the Premier League side.
However, it appears that the former Sunderland boss is not the only manager West Ham reached out to, with the Mirror suggesting that contact was made with Silva, Pellegrini and Mancini - seemingly confirming that the writing has been on the wall for Bilic for a while.
But, the Mirror adds that Silva, Pellegrini and Mancini - managing Watford, Hebei China Fortune and Zenit Saint Petersburg respectively - all rejected the chance to come to the London Stadium as they did not want break their contract midway through the campaign.
That has seemingly left the path clear for Moyes to get the job, with the Mirror insisting that Bilic's departure is imminent, and he will certainly have a lot to prove with the Irons.
Moyes' stock as a manager has arguably not been lower since before he arrived at Everton 15 years ago, and he will surely have to go some way to convince the West Ham fans that he is the right man to take them forward.
