West Ham boss Moyes: Future remains undecided until safety secured

David Moyes has explained why he won't announce his future plans until after West Ham United have secured their Premier League safety.

The Hammers boss took over Slaven Bilic in November and is under contract until June.

"I've been asked about my position frequently in the past few weeks and my answer is still the same," he wrote in column in the London Evening Standard.

"I want to get the club safe first and foremost — and then take it from there.

"That doesn't mean I'm not making plans for next season. Whatever my future, I am employed by the club until the end of the season and my job here is to think ahead and try to improve things.

"I've already outlined the pre-season programme and I'm due to go abroad and check out a few training camps during the international break this month. We also plan to advertise for a head of recruitment going forward.

"Am I preparing for next season? Am I talking with the owners about improvements? Yes, I am. Hopefully, the things we are suggesting make for good practice and whether it is me or someone else, I hope they are the right ideas to take this club forward.

"I would say again, I am really enjoying my job here and I would have no problems staying but I just think, for the sake of me and the club, we don't need to say or do anything just now."
