West Ham United Delays Contract Talks With David Moyes Amid Poor Form

West Ham United is facing a delay in contract talks with manager David Moyes as the team struggles through a period of poor form, with seven winless matches. The anticipated extension for Moyes has been put on hold following a humiliating 6-0 defeat against Arsenal at the London Stadium.

The initial expectation was for Moyes, whose contract expires at the end of the season, to sign a two-and-a-half-year extension, securing his position at West Ham until June 2026. However, the recent setbacks have hindered progress, prompting the club to reassess the situation.

Moyes, aged 60, had indicated that talks were progressing well until the team’s form took a nosedive. The concerning collapse in results has raised doubts about the timing of finalizing the new contract, especially with high-profile managers eyeing the position at West Ham.

After the disappointing loss to Arsenal, where thousands of fans left the stadium before halftime, Moyes described it as a ‘terrible day’ and acknowledged the team’s evident struggles on the pitch, stating they ‘appeared to fall apart.’

Since their last Premier League victory over Arsenal in December, West Ham has endured a string of poor performances and was also eliminated from the FA Cup by Championship side Bristol City. The failure to reinforce the squad with a center-forward during the January transfer window has added to the club’s growing frustration.

Upcoming fixtures against relegation-threatened clubs like Nottingham Forest, Brentford, Everton, and Burnley present an opportunity for West Ham to reverse their fortunes. However, failure to secure positive results in these matches could intensify pressure on Moyes and the club to reconsider offering him a new contract.
