​STUNNER! Moyes leaves West Ham

In a stunning development, David Moyes has departed from West Ham United after just six months in charge.

Moyes successfully kept West Ham in the Premier League, after joining the club when they were in a desperate situation.

However, Moyes was unable to agree terms on a new deal with the Hammers board. He will depart, along with his three assistants.

Joint-Chairman David Sullivan said in a statement: "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.

"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 10 days."

West Ham are chasing after the likes of Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez and former Man City manager Manuel Pellegrini for the job, per Sky Sports.
