“West Ham United are pleased to confirm that David Moyes has returned to the Club as first-team manager.”

“Moyes has signed an 18-month deal and begins work immediately ahead of the New Year’s Day fixture with AFC Bournemouth at London Stadium.”

The clubs chairman David Sullivan said

“David proved in his short time with the Club that he was capable of getting results.”

“We believe that he will start moving the Club in the right direction once again.”

“We are delighted to welcome David back.”

“He knows the Club well and he built strong relationships during that time which will be crucial for the work that needs to be done going forward.”

Moyes himself is also thrilled with a second chance with the Hammers.

He said:

“It’s fabulous to be back, it feels great to be home.”

“I’ve missed being here because I really enjoyed it.”

“I can’t wait to get started.”
