Bleacher Report’s transfer insider Dean Jones has had his say on the rumours linking David Moyes with a move to Celtic.
The West Ham manager has emerged as a candidate to replace Neil Lennon, with the Hoops reportedly keen to on a possible switch.
Moyes has been in charge at the London Stadium since December 2019, leading the Hammers on an unlikely push for Champions League football during the current campaign.
Do you want to see Moyes at Celtic?
The 57-year-old’s contract is actually up at the end of the campaign, but there have been suggestions West Ham are ready to offer him a new contract, due to concerns that other clubs are interested in his services.
“There’s been a little bit of talk about David Moyes – I think it’s possible that he’s been sounded out by a third party just to see what he’s thinking right now.
“Obviously, his contract at West Ham is running down and I think he probably will sign a new contract at West Ham, but it wouldn’t surprise me even if the leaks have come from that end of things, because he wants to make sure that he gets what he wants at West Ham. He’s done such a good job, he should pretty much get to decide what happens from here.
“They should give him a couple more years and look to build on this, because it’s not very often that West Ham have had this kind of stability and such a strong position to build on. I’d be amazed if they didn’t assign David Moyes to a new contract, but I can definitely see why Celtic will be looking at that situation.”
Transfer Tavern take
Moyes took over from Manuel Pellegrini with West Ham flirting above the relegation zone in 2019. The transformation since then has been brilliant, and it seems as if a similar transformation at Parkhead is needed following this season’s disappointing displays.
Whether or not he would be interested in a return to Scotland remains to be seen, but with things in London going so well for Moyes, it could surprise many if he decided to make the move north.
