The future of David Moyes has been the subject of much debate since West Ham United secured Premier League safety at the weekend.

West Ham ran out comfortable 2-0 winners at Leicester City on Saturday to move onto 38 points.

In all liklihood that would have been another to preserve their Premier League status but Everton's last gasp draw against Southampton in the evening kick-off officially sealed it with two games remaining.

That does not mask what has been another torrid season for the Hammers on and off the pitch and supporters want big changes from unpopular co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold.

The first thing the owners must address is the future of David Moyes with supporters divided over whether he should be handed a new deal this summer.

Many Hammers fans want the club needs to look to a more forward thinking manager and feel Moyes is too similar to Sam Allardyce.

There have been claims and counter claims in the media over the future of Moyes.

Some reports claim the owners were looking at other targets following recent performances against Stoke, Arsenal and Manchester City while others said the Scot would be staying on due to a lack of alternative options.

But now well-placed journalist Ken Dyer, who has been covering West Ham for the London Evening Standard for decades, claims the Hammers board has set a date of May 18th to make a decision on Moyes' future.

"West Ham have two home games left — against Manchester United on Thursday and Everton on Sunday – and the board want the dust to settle before making a final decision," Dyer wrote in the Evening Standard.

"A club source said: “We want to take 10 days so, in the cold light of day, we can make a rational decision.”

Claims there are a lack of options have been lambasted by Hammers fans who point to the fact the likes of Marco Silva, Manuel Pellegrini, Unai Emery and potentially even Rafa Benitez will be available this summer as evidence.
