Following Manuel Pellegrini's departure from West Ham United shortly after Saturday's 2-1 home defeat to Leicester City, the Board have moved quickly to confirm the Chilean's replacement with David Moyes back in East London. The Scot has signed an 18-month contract.

Moyes returns to Stratford with the club currently residing in seventeenth place in the Premier League table just a point and a place above the relegation zone. He will start work immediately as he prepares the team for the visit of AFC Bournemouth on New Year's Day.

The former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland boss faces a similar looking task to the one he had when he originally took charge of the Irons back in November 2017.

That season, he guided them to safety, as they finished in thirteenth position and the club's hierarchy are certainly hoping that with more time in the job on this occasion that he can achieve at least the same again.

Although Moyes definitely made an impact with his last squad at West Ham, he only brought in striker Jordan Hugill and defender Patrice Evra on permanent deals. This time however, he has the whole of January in order to make his own imprint on the team. The window is about to open and as ever, news of transfer movement both in and out of Stratford will be provided by this site as soon as it is announced.
