West Ham have confirmed the appointment of David Moyes following Manuel Pellegrini's dismissal on Saturday evening.

The Scot has been out of work since leaving the London Stadium in 2018 after an interim spell at the club.

Moyes this time returns on an 18-month deal, with West Ham languishing just one point and place outside the relegation zone.

The former Everton boss is being tasked with saving the club from relegation for the second time in three seasons.

“It’s fabulous to be back,” said Moyes.

“It feels great to be home. I’ve missed being here because I really enjoyed it.

"I enjoyed being around the stadium and I loved being in this part of the world and I missed the Club, so I can’t wait to get started.

“I'm feeling very proud that I’m back here at West Ham. But I think more importantly I’ll be looking to see what I can do and what I can make improvements to, how we can get some wins with the players and how we can get some quick wins on the field as well.

“I do believe that the squad of players I’ve got here is a better squad of players than when I took over before, so I am looking forward to working with them.

“I think there’s got to be a short-term goal for us just now to get the wins to get us away from the wrong end of the league and what we’re going to do over the next six months, then what we’re going to do over the next period as well.

"The start is really focusing on the immediate games.”

Pellegrini's sacking came after just two wins in West Ham's last nine league games left them no choice.

The Chilean's ally Mario Husillos has also left his role as director of football.

Moyes is expected to bring in his own backroom staff.

The returning boss is set to take charge on Monday, ahead of the game with Bournemouth on New Year's Day.
