No decision has yet been made on whether West Ham United will keep hold of manager David Moyes beyond the end of this season, according to fansite Claret & Hugh.

The Scot was bought in with a remit to keep the Hammers in the Premier League, yet their fate remains unclear with three matches of the term still to play.

Moyes’ men currently reside in 15th position in the table, three points clear of the relegation zone ahead of the clash with Leicester City this weekend.

Whilst it had been thought that staying in the top flight would secure the former Everton boss a new contract at West Ham, it seems that this may no longer be the case.

With his contract only running until the summer, the board may decide to start afresh with a new manager in place regardless of which division the Irons find themselves at the beginning of the 2018-19 campaign.

No announcement is expected to be made before the end-of-season meeting, which is usually held at the start of June.

Having taken the job in November with the club sitting in the bottom three of the table, Moyes has at least ensured that survival remains in his team’s hands going into the final stretch of the season.

However, doubts have crept in as to whether he is a suitable long-term option in the dugout given the inconsistent form West Ham have shown since his arrival, alongside many fans’ disapproval of his tactical approach.

There has also been a suggestion in recent weeks that Moyes has lost the dressing room at the London Stadium after publicly criticising youngster Declan Rice and allegedly sending striker Andy Carroll home from training on Monday, as reported by The Telegraph.

A difficult run-in sees the Hammers host Manchester United and Everton in their final two games of the Premier League campaign, following Saturday’s visit to ninth-placed Leicester.
