David Moyes departs West Ham United despite keeping them up

David Moyes has left his role as West Ham manager, six months after his appointment as Slaven Bilic's successor.

West Ham's joint-chairman David Sullivan - a target for plenty of that ire - thanked Moyes for keeping the team in the top flight and promised a "high-calibre" figure as his replacement.

'We are already taking steps to identify and recruit the manager we believe can take the club into an exciting future for our loyal supporters within the next 10 days, ' Sullivan said after announcing the end of Moyes's brief tenure.

Moyes said: "I could have joined a Premier League club during the season here, when I was West Ham manager".

Rice's breakthrough season couldn't have gone much better, but with a new manager on the way, does his swift rise comes under the risk of being halted?

Allardyce arrived at Everton in November and still had 12 months to run on his contract with the Toffees, with Big Sam dragging Everton out of a relegation battle (Ronald Koeman was sacked in October) and into eighth place in the table but a late charge for a Europa League spot faltered.

On Tuesday fellow co-chairman David Gold had claimed he wanted Moyes to stay but in a statement on Wednesday Sullivan said the club had made a decision to "move in a different direction". Moyes' reputation has been rebuilt somewhat after his debacle at Manchester United and Sunderland, so he may well be happy to move on.

Gold also felt that injuries had contributed to a disappointing season for West Ham, adding: "We were disappointed at our performance right the way through the year".

Subsequent claims in the media say that Fonseca looks set to accept improved terms with Shakhtar where has won back-to-back domestic league and cup doubles.
