Moyes Sets Out HIS Rules!

The will he or won't he doubts as to whether David Moyes would sign a new contract at West Ham have been put to bed somewhat, with the club due to 'officially' announce the managers signature of a new three year deal om Monday. Behind the scenes things weren't quite as straight forward as they had originally seemed, with Everton's sudden need for a new manager being a particular fly in the ointment, however, it appears that David Moyes utilised the 'Everton jeopardy' to ensure certain promises would be put down in writing.

So what were Moyes's terms? The financial side of Moyes's salary will be 'hidden' in the books, but the recruitment and direction of the club going forward issue was a key element in thrashing out the deal. Apparently David Moyes made certain demands, that unless met, would stop him from serving any more time as manager other than the one year that was automatically triggered on his contract due to how high the club had finished.

As we understand, here are the key 'issues' that needed discussion ahead of closing the deal, primarily David Moyes does not want to countenance the sale of Declan Rice at ANY price, not for a couple of years or more at least. Here is what he said as early as March of this year regarding Rice's potential value and future, "I don't agree with the owners that Declan Rice is a £100million footballer. Far, far more than £100m. Far, far more, I look at the players who have joined some clubs from overseas and come in and nowhere near had the impact Declan Rice would have. I certainly wouldn't put a price on it. You can decide which figure you want to put on it but I wouldn't be sanctioning anything like that, that's for sure."

Next up Moyes sought confirmation of 'exactly' how much is available for him to spend, in addition a guarantee that any funds from player sales would be made available solely for his use. The budget needed to be 'ring fenced' and player acquisitions had to have his say so.

The players Moyes wants? In no particular order, Jesse Lingard, Tammy Abrahams, a top midfielder possibly Alex Krall, a left back possibly Junior Firpo, and a new keeper possibly Sam Johnstone. Obviously Moyes would hopefully be looking at bringing in a few more players than that, but much will depend on how much dead wood can be removed from the club.

Moyes signing his new contract is good news, even better that he does so from a position of strength, and that the 'pantomime' that West Ham was is finally going 'serious'. - Ed

Fantastic news and what Amazing Timing regarding the Everton position becoming vacant.
I can't remember ANY West Ham board being held to account and being forced to honour promises by putting football first (If True).
No more cheeky chairmen punts for past it players or nobodies. I'm tired of this club being run like Delboy Trotter Enterprises.
This is what we want as supporters.... Great news if true!
Moyes tightens his Grip........COYI

However I cannot see this season being repeated but it will be nice to watch some good football for a change and not be fighting relegation battle.
