West Ham United fans have reacted on Twitter to David Moyes signing a new contract following those Everton rumours.
With Everton having to deal with the surprise departure of Carlo Ancelotti, a number of names have been flying about for their vacant post, including the man who guided West Ham into Europe this season, as reported by the Times.
Moyes isn’t a stranger to life on Merseyside after he managed Everton for a number of years, but there were suggestions that he was on the club’s hit list.
But all of that has now been put to bed with the Scotsman penning down a new three-year contract at the London Stadium, as confirmed by West Ham on Saturday.
And he can now look forward to a European tour next season, with the Hammers in the Europa League and hoping to work their magic with the big boys.
Whilst Moyes didn’t fare well in that competition itself during his days at Goodison Park, he does have a history of being in the previously named UEFA Cup with Everton.
So, it will be interesting to see how he uses those past experiences to his advantage this time around.
In the meantime, Everton will continue to search for that new name to replace Ancelotti in the dugout, with ex-Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo’s name strongly bandied about.
