​Moyes holding off on new contract until West Ham fans return

West Ham United manager David Moyes will not get a new contract until there is more clarity on fans being back in stadiums.

The Hammers are aware of the financial implications of many more months of empty stadiums in the Premier League.

The club has lost a lot of money since the COVID-19 lockdowns and resulting crises.

According to the Daily Mail, such financial implications and the way it would look to give out bumper new contracts during these times means the Hammers are holding off on talks with players and their manager.

Moyes is the man they want at the club for the long term, but they hope to start talks on a new deal in the coming months.

West Ham will have only 2000 fans in the stadium against Manchester United on Saturday - a limit that will actually cost them money.

When those limits increase and there is more normality, Moyes should be first in line for talks on a new contract.
