Alan Stubbs isn’t in talks with West Ham- but he’d certainly welcome them if the opportunity arose.

Recent reports had suggested that Stubbs had been approached by David Moyes. The Irons boss seemingly wanted to make the ex-Hibs boss part of his London Stadium coaching team.

That isn’t the case though. As quoted by the Daily Record, Stubbs says that whilst he would be keen on a move, no such talks have taken place.

“There’s no story. I got my first inkling about it on Saturday when I got a text from my daughter’s boyfriend asking me if I was going to West Ham but it was the first I’d heard about it,” said Stubbs.

“I’ve heard nothing and that is the truth. I think he’s a really good coach but there is nothing more to it. He’s an really good coach and if there’s an interest, I’d certainly speak to him.”

Certainly keen on West Ham

Whilst there’s no substance to recent links, it doesn’t mean Stubbs isn’t interested. It sounds as if the former Hibee would jump at the chance to work under Moyes at West Ham.

He’s already done so as a player. The pair were teamed up at Everton and Stubbs played under Moyes during his lengthy reign at Goodison Park.

Stubbs himself has been out of management since a spell with St Mirren back in 2018. He had previously had spells with Hibs and Rotherham, famously bringing the Scottish Cup to Leith in 2016.

His next move won’t be to West Ham it appears though.
