David Moyes is expected to remain the boss of West Ham after talks with David Sullivan. With a year left on his contract, Moyes is set to continue at the London Stadium after leading the team to its first trophy in 43 years on Wednesday with a 2-1 triumph against Fiorentina in Prague. He was also connected with the open position at Celtic. After Sullivan disclosed on Thursday that captain and talisman Declan Rice will be transferred this summer, the two talked about summer transfer intentions as well as the manager’s future. Sullivan said that because of a gentleman’s agreement, they will permit a player with two years left on his contract to go.
Meanwhile, Roma is interested in loaning Gianluca Scamacca from West Ham. After Tammy Abraham suffered a devastating injury on the final day of the season, the Italian team is searching for a replacement forward. It is anticipated that they will formally express their interest in Scamacca, who is also on AC Milan’s radar. Last season, the 24-year-old scored just three Premier League goals, including his first for West Ham. Due to a knee injury, he hasn’t played for them since January, missing the Europa Conference League final after joining the Hammers from Sassuolo for £35.5 million last summer.
After praising his first major prize triumph as the finest night of his career, West Ham boss David Moyes gave his father his Europa Conference League winner’s medal. West Ham defeated Fiorentina 2-1 in the final in Prague thanks to a last-second winner from Jarrod Bowen, giving them their first trophy since the FA Cup in 1980 and their first European crown since 1965. At the conclusion of West Ham’s European tour, Moyes’ father, 87-year-old David Snr., joined his son on the pitch.
“Since he was the first, I reasoned that I should put the rope around his neck. Over the years, he has seen a lot, and I hope he loved it,” Moyes said. “He still has a lot of energy and wants to attend the game. It’s fantastic; having your family there made the experience much better. As a manager, these situations don’t occur frequently. You must put forth a lot of effort.”
