David Moyes has signed a new three-year contract with West Ham to keep him tied to the club until 2024.

The former Manchester United boss’ previous deal was due to expire in July. He had been touted as a potential replacement for the Real Madrid-bound Carlo Ancelotti as the next Everton manager.

But Moyes, who previously coached the Blues between 2002 and 2013, has instead opted to extend his stay in London.

The Scot has enjoyed a superb second spell in charge of West Ham and led the Hammers to the Europa League last season by securing a solid sixth-place in the Premier League.

“I am delighted to have committed my future to West Ham United,” said Moyes on the club’s website.

“This is where I want to be and I’m happy. I’m excited to be given this opportunity to build on what we all have already achieved here. The owners and I are fully aligned with how we want to keep developing and improving the football club.

“The board and everyone at the club have been fantastic to work with, giving me great support and I feel that we are all united in what we want to achieve in the coming years and how we might be able to achieve those things.”

Moyes ranks fourth on the list of Premier League managers with the most games under their belt on 583 matches behind Arsene Wenger, Sir Alex Ferguson, Harry Redknapp.

As the 58-year-old is officially unavailable now, Nuno Espirito Santo is expected to take over at Everton. The former Wolves boss is reportedly in advanced talks at Goodison Park.
