David Moyes’ future as West Ham manager is once again in doubt, according to talkSPORT.
Moyes was set to agree a new two-and-a-half year contract in December following his historic Europa Conference League victory last season.
However, owner David Sullivan is now less sure of retaining the Scottish boss beyond the end of the season.
The east Londoners are currently on a seven-match winless run in all competitions, with a 6-0 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday their heaviest home defeat in the Premier League.
Sullivan is also said to be concerned about growing negativity towards Moyes from Hammers fans.
That said, it is understood that Moyes will have time to turn around West Ham’s fortunes.
The club’s next four matches will go a long way to deciding their fate, with those fixtures all coming against teams ranked in the bottom seven of the Premier League table.
They include matches against Nottingham Forest, Brentford, Everton and Burnley.
Moyes also has credit in the bank with Sullivan after last season’s European exploits, with the Europa Conference League success being the first major trophy won by the club since 1980.
The 60-year-old is currently in his second spell as West Ham manager having managed the club from 2017 to 2018, before rejoining in 2019.
During this period, Moyes led West Ham to a record Premier League total of 65 points, while recording sixth and seventh-place finishes along the way.
