Former Hibs boss Alan Stubbs could complete a brilliant return to football with West Ham according to a report (Edinburgh Evening News).

The report claims that Stubbs has been approached by new Hammers boss David Moyes. He wants to add the former Hibee to his backroom staff in London.

Moyes first worked with the 48-year-old at Everton. Stubbs was still a player then and Moyes was his boss for several seasons at Goodison Park.

West Ham provide good move for Stubbs

Stubbs’ greatest achievement in management so far must surely be Hibs’ Scottish Cup triumph in 2016. He led the Hibees to their first Scottish Cup since 1902 with a 3-2 victory over Rangers.

There could be a reunion on the cards with Moyes now though and an answer is expected in the coming days. It’s a great opportunity for Stubbs and it’s hard to imagine that he’d turn down a big Premier League move.

Moyes is now in his second stint as Hammers boss after keeping the club in the EPL in 2018. It was only a short while ago he was linked with moves to Hearts and Hibs and the Irons boss had to shut down rumours (BBC).
