According to a report by club insider Claret & Hugh, West Ham United manager David Moyes has ‘no intention’ of leaving east London this summer to manage his former club Celtic despite links to the Glasgow outfit, coming after the Scotsman revealed that he had talks on the matter with David Sullivan last month.
Insider drops Moyes claim
Moyes has enjoyed a great season with West Ham United overall, with the Hammers on course for European football despite operating with a comparatively limited budget.
The Irons sold Sebastien Haller in early January without bringing in a recognised striker to replace him, but the signing of Jesse Lingard appears to have masked that issue.
As a result of his job overall with West Ham, Moyes has apparently been attracting interest from Celtic – but club insider Claret & Hugh has revealed that the 57-year-old holds no interest in leaving London this summer.
Transfer Tavern take
This comes after he confirmed a conversation with Sullivan over the matter last month, and it’s safe to say this comes as a boost for West Ham given the job he has done this term.
Speaking to the press, Moyes also confirmed that he has an automatic 12-month extension clause in his contract if the Irons finish above 13th, something which looks a formality.
As Claret & Hugh share the latest on his future, it looks as if he isn’t going anywhere any time soon – something which is likely to please Hammers everywhere.
