West Ham are exploring options for potential replacements for David Moyes should he depart the club, reports ExWHUEmployee.

There is a significant amount of uncertainty at present surrounding the future of Moyes, with the club suffering a very poor run of form alongside uninspiring displays by the side for some time.

Our Hammers are winless in the last 8 matches in all competitions, and have shipped in 11 goals in the last 3 games – without scoring a single goal.

As has been reported by Ex, the club are understood to be very concerned with the plight and the pressure is mounting on the West Ham manager, which has led to some fans venting their anger at the situation following our latest loss at the weekend to a relegation battling Nottingham Forest – which was another abject display.

Our Podcast co-host and club insider Ex has now provided an update on the situation, with it understood that plans are being made for a new manager should the club decide to cut ties with Moyes, with Tim Steidten heavily involved in the drive.

Speaking on The West Ham Way Podcast, Ex advised that some names have been discussed as, understandably, contingency plans are drawn up.

“I can confirm that the club are looking at alternative options,” stated Ex. “Tim Steidten is the man heavily involved and leading the potential drive to replace Moyes, should he depart.

“There have been various names mentioned in the press, however at this stage its very early, with the club still hoping David Moyes turns the situation around. The club though are, and rightly so, planning ahead should the manager depart.”
