DoF capped?


Filed: Thursday, 19th April 2018

David Sullivan's could be set to backtrack on a promise to install a Director of Football at West Ham.

A report in today's Times claims that Sullivan is set to renege on an agreement to hire a dedicated DoF at the club, just a matter of weeks after he pledged to remove himself from the decision-making process regarding player transfers.

That is, says the Times, as a result of negotiations with current managerial incumbent David Moyes who is set to be offered a permanent contract once West Ham's Premier League safety is assured.

The manager, whose existing arrangement expires at the end of the season is said to have been promised full control of both incoming and outgoing transfers, thus negating the need for a full time overseer.

Moyes, who replaced Slaven Bilic last November is said to have been steadily expanding his influence at the club, having introduced five full-time scouts in recent months say The Times.

Meanwhile a KUMB.com poll asking whether Moyes should be offered extended terms has seen the notion backed by roughly half of those to respond thus far.

The poll is open to all existing Forum members, and may be found here.
