David Moyes is set to have the final word on any potential contract extension, Football Insider have reported. The Scotsman is in his second spell at West Ham but the club's recent form have seen the side fail to win in their last five outings.

Their most recent match saw a 6-0 hammering by fellow London side Arsenal with the bookies then tipping the 60-year-old to be the third most likely Premier League boss to be removed from his duties. Ex-Chelsea boss Graham Potter was already one of the hot favourites to replace Moyes.

However, in the latest twist of the tale, the reports from Football Insider have said that a new deal was "ready to go" in December but Moyes is still yet to give his definitive answer on the situation, even with his current contract set to expire this June.

Despite the change in results - which have seen the defeat to the Gunners as well as a 3-0 loss to Manchester United - the latest reports indicate that an extension offer is still on the table and whether or not it is accepted is largely up to the ex-Red Devils boss.

Sources have confirmed that the offer would be for two-and-a-half-years which would see him remain in Stratford until June 2026 and the club's owners will now look to sit down with the former Real Sociedad boss to get a definitive answer. Speaking back in December, Moyes expressed his intention of staying with the Hammers, confirming: "We will get it (the contract) done. I don't see many problems about it."

This is the ex-Centre back's second stint with the Irons, having managed the club for just six months previously in the 2017/18 season. Second time around, Moyes guided the side to a record Premier League points total of 65, finishing in sixth place and qualifying them for the 2021/22 UEFA Europa League.

The following season, Moyes then led the side to a top seven finish and Europa League semi-final and it was the first time in the club's history the team had secured top seven finishes in back-to-back seasons. And, of course, Moyes was also the man in charge of West Ham's UEFA Europa Conference League triumph which saw the club remain unbeaten throughout the tournament, beating Fiorentina 2-1.
