David Moyes is in charge of West Ham United at the moment.

David Moyes may have been given a contract until the end of the season at West Ham United, but it seems that there is a chance that the former Manchester United and Everton manager could remain longer at the London Stadium.

West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has suggested in The Sun that Moyes could help the club grow, just as he did at Premier League rivals Everton.

“We at West Ham thought Slaven Bilic, experienced as Croatia manager for six years, might be the young general to lead our troops to the top of the hill, or at least close to it,” Brady wrote in The Sun.

“Bilic is highly intelligent and an admirable coach but we are still just above the bottom of the hill and he is no longer with us.

“We had a tilt on reasonable evidence that the manager would grow with his club and feel the same with David Moyes. He proved over 11 years at Everton that he knows how to build a successful side.”

West Ham are a massive club and get over 50,000 fans for their home matches at the London Stadium.

The way the Hammers have performed so far this season must be hugely disappointing for the fans, but they should remain optimistic.

Moyes is a very good manager, and although the Scotsman may not have been successful at Manchester United or Sunderland, he is someone who can take West Ham to the next level if given time and afforded patience.

West Ham are in danger of getting relegated to the Championship at the end of the season and need to put together a run of positive results in the Premier League.
