West Ham 'identify' David Moyes replacement candidates as Scot 'expected' to leave at end of the season

West Ham United are looking at replacements for David Moyes, with their current boss ‘expected’ to leave at the end of the season.

David Moyes could leave West Ham United at the end of the 2023/24 season - he was offered a new deal by the club back in February, but has yet to agree new terms with his current contract due to expire in the summer.

This is according to a report from Football Insider. The Hammers are thought to be looking towards a future without Moyes - as such, they are now beginning their search for a potential replacement.

Moyes has had two stints in charge of West Ham - his first spell last from 2017 to 2018, returning to the club in 2019 - he has remained in charge ever since.

Who would be a good fit at West Ham if David Moyes leaves the club?

While no one has been explicitly linked with a move to West Ham as things stand, there are certain managers who have are rumoured to be interested in the Irons post. One of them is former Chelsea head coach Graham Potter, who has not taken on a job in management since his departure from Stamford Bridge.

While the 48-year-old’s stock took a hit after his Blues debacle, he is still a talented manager - a move to West Ham, with the excellent attacking talent they possess, could be a brilliant way for him to get his career back on track.

Hammers legend Mark Noble is also believed to be in the picture. This would be a risky appointment, given Noble’s complete lack of managerial experience - however, he would likely have the respect of the squad, given his standing at the club.

Additionally, former Chelsea and Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is considered to be an outside option. While it seems unlikely that the Portuguese icon will join the Irons, he is currently out of work and could be tempted by a return to the Premier League.
