New deal for Bilic, claims source

A matter of days after Roberto Mancini was spotted at the Olympic Stadium, Slaven Bilic is on the verge of landing a new contract - according to a tabloid newspaper.

Rumours of Bilic's impending doom were rife across social media last weekend when former Manchester City boss Mancini, who has been out of work since leaving Inter last August was spotted at the match between West Ham and his former club.




However the same tabloid which suggested Bilic was on the verge of being replaced by the 52-year-old Italian reports today that the club are willing to offer Bilic a new contract at the end of the current campaign.

"Thereís nothing we want more than for Slaven to go onto his third year with us but we really do need to start seeing some decent performances," said an unnamed 'London Stadium source'.

"There have been some scrappy wins and we need to see some good football and stuff to please the fans. Thatís important.

"Then we can go into next season free of any source of anxiety and think about another contract at the end of this one as has always been the case at this club. That was what we wanted to see and it was great to watch."
