Alan Curbishley has revealed that he is fully involved with the club's search for a technical director.
It was revealed last weekend that the Hammers are to bring in 'someone with a football background' to oversee the transition to the new stadium and training centre.
And United boss Curbishley has spoken out to allay fears over his own future, insisting that he is 'whole-heartedly involved' with the plans.
"We're looking at a new stadium and a new training ground and with everything else going on here the workload will be immense," he said. "So it makes sense to bring someone in to oversee the changes.
"We need to push on. We're looking at everything in the club and we need a bit of help with that. I've been filled in and I'm onside with it - we've been talking about it for some months.
"It's a big club and we need someone who can spend more time on that than the manager can."
The Hammers are set to leave Upton Park in 2010 when they will move to a brand new 70,000 capacity stadium on the current Parcel Force site by West Ham station.
