A potentially massive hint has been dropped regarding David Moyes’ future at West Ham United.

Despite almost every outsider failing to see why, David Moyes is a very controversial figure amongst West Ham fans. While he has achieved brilliant things in East London, his style of play leaves a lot to desire and there is a strong argument that the Hammers should be in an even better position than they are this season.

The consensus amongst the majority of fans is that he should not be in charge come the start of next season but, in light of recent news, they may not get what they want.

Our own ExWHUEmployee revealed some weeks ago that David Moyes’ son was to join the Hammers as a scout. In the opinion of The Sun, the appointment of David Jr all but confirms that his father will get a new contract.

Obviously it would not make much sense for Moyes’ son to join just for him to leave a few months later, but there has still not been a decision made by the board on whether he will be offered a new deal.

Either way, this is bound to cause outrage amongst fans from either side of the Moyes debate. While it certainly is not a confirmation of an extension, it does seem to suggest that Moyes at least believes he is likely to get one.
