Kurt Zouma’s future at West Ham depends on whether David Moyes signs a new deal.

The signing of Kurt Zouma felt like it was the start of a new era at West Ham. The Hammers had just secured their first season of European football under David Moyes and the French international was the sort of player that could push them on to the next level.

Over the next couple of seasons he would go on to be absolutely pivotal to the East London side. He formed a brilliant partnership with Craig Dawson during his first season at the club and helped his side to European glory in the Conference League the season after. 

Unfortunately, after taking the captain’s armband at the start of this campaign though, things seem to have gone downhill for the 29 year old. It seems like his repeated knee injuries have finally caught up with him and his mobility has taken a nosedive. Worryingly, it would not be a surprise if he was forced into an early retirement due to it. 

Despite this though, Football Insider have reported that David Moyes plans on keeping him past the Summer if he is still in charge. Zouma’s recent form has led to some believing the club should move him on in the Summer and a new manager could potentially share the same opinion.

Hopefully this is just a poor run from our captain and nothing more but, if not, the warning signs have been there. However, losing three captains in the space of three years is far from ideal and it is understandable as to why Moyes would want to keep him for at least another year, which is when his contract runs out.
