West Ham are unconcerned that David Moyes may return to Everton following Carlo Ancelotti’s forced return to Real Madrid.
As they look for a new manager, Everton are considering a move to entice Moyes back to Goodison Park.
Everton chairman Bill Kenwright holds Moyes in high regard after he spent 11 years at the club between 2002 and 2013.
However, Moyes is close to signing a new three-year contract with West Ham after leading the Hammers to sixth place in the Premier League and their highest-ever Premier League points total last season.
Negotiations for a new contract have been ongoing for some time, and he has the option of extending his present contract for another year.
Moyes is also working on long-term strategies to improve on his outstanding first full season in charge at the London Stadium.
The 58-year-old wants all of his coaching staff’s contracts to be signed at the same time, and he’s looking for a new No 2 after Alan Irvine returned to a consulting role.
