West Ham prepared to axe Slaven Bilic

West Ham are prepared to axe Slaven Bilic after Friday night's defeat to Reading.

The Daily Mail says Bilic is clinging to his job as West Ham boss but the club's board are worried about their lack of obvious options for a successor.

While Bilic remains on the brink, their search for a suitable replacement in the short and long term has seen the Hammers hit a brick wall.

Friday night's 3-0 home loss to Brighton means West Ham's manager now faces crucial away games against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup and Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Club insiders say two losses will force the board's hand, regardless of whether a replacement is lined up.
