West Ham could appoint a former player as a replacement for David Moyes if their poor form continues.

While David Moyes insists that he has a contract offer from West Ham already, the reality is that the pressure is piling on. Now more than ever, there are serious doubts over whether he will be West Ham’s manager heading into next season and, as a result, it is believed that Tim Steidten is drawing up a list of potential replacements.

The likes of Thomas Tuchel and Graham Potter have been heavily linked with the job, one journalist believes that a certain ex-West Ham player would be the perfect replacement for the Scotsman.

Gary O’Neil has been doing a sensational job with Wolves. The midlands side were one of the favourites to go down this season, but he has managed to give them an outside chance of getting Europe. Dean Jones in particular has stated his admiration for the 40 year old and how the Hammers may look to bring him in. 

“It’s a weird situation that Wolves are in right now,” he told GIVEMESPORT. “At the start of the 2023/24 season, their biggest worry was being relegated. Now, they are in a pretty comfortable situation, but the guys that have gotten them into that place will now be looked at by some other sharks across the Premier League, looking to eat up Wolves and get them out of there.”

“I think O’Neil has done a brilliant job so far, and it wouldn’t totally surprise me if West Ham did end up having to look back into the Premier League if that was the sort of manager that did interest them from the top flight.”

No one expected O’Neil to do so well at Bournemouth or Wolves but he could be the perfect replacement for Moyes. He likes to play on the front foot but also creates a very strong defence and, as you can see from the Wolves fans, is an extremely likeable person. Unlike a lot of rumoured replacements, he is someone that the majority of the East London faithful could get behind.
