David Moyes will not be in charge of West Ham next season after it was decided not to renew his short-term contract at the London Stadium.

Moyes was brought in by the Hammers in November in a bid to fend off relegation from the Premier League, and the former Everton and Manchester United boss achieved his target.

Former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is the early favourite to replace Moyes at West Ham, as he's even money to be in charge next season, with Paulo Fonseca and Rafa Benitez the other leading contenders.

It was not easy for the 55-year-old who struggled to get his club clear of danger before eventually keeping them up, with off-field unrest between fans and owners not helping his case.

West Ham joint-chairman David Sullivan said Moyes was not be staying on as manager after achieving hisprimary target of keeping West Ham in the Premier League.

"I would like to place on record my sincere thanks to David Moyes and his staff for achieving the target of keeping West Ham United in the Premier League," read Sullivan's statement.

"Throughout his time here, David has carried himself with dignity and honesty and we have all found him to be a pleasure to work with. He, Alan, Stuart and Billy accepted the challenge and attacked it head on, turning around a difficult situation. They deserve great respect for the job they have done and they leave the Club with our best wishes.

"When David and his team arrived, it was the wish of both parties that the focus be only on the six months until the end of the season, at which point a decision would be made with regards to the future. Having taken stock of the situation and reflected now the campaign is complete, we feel that it is right to move in a different direction.

"We are already taking steps to identify and recruit the manager we believe can take West Ham United forward in line with our ambitions. We aim to appoint a high-calibre figure who we feel will lead the Club into an exciting future for our loyal supporters within the next ten days."
