Former Dunfermline Athletic defender David Moyes has signed a new three-year deal to stay on as manager of English Premier League club West Ham United.

While Moyes – who ranks fourth in an all-time list of Premier League matches managed with 583 – is well-known for his lengthy time as a boss south of the border, the West Ham United manager is fondly spoken of in Dunfermline. He made over 100 appearances for the Scottish Championship side between 1990-1993.

Moyes has since gone on to establish himself as an excellent manager at the highest level, the former Dunfermline centre-back saying of his West Ham United deal: “I am delighted to have committed my future to West Ham United. 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.

“We have made tremendous progress in the past 15 months and that has been a collective effort from everyone at the Club. The players really have been superb but the challenge is for our standards to continue developing. We must keep pushing boundaries for consistent improvement as we all aim to continue the growing of the Club.

“I have said it many times before – West Ham United is a huge Club, with a wonderful fanbase and Stadium, and an enormous opportunity for further growth and success. I am really excited by the ambition that we have at the Club and we are going to work as hard as we possibly can to keep moving forward.”
