  • West Ham's David Moyes appointment highlights real issue for young British coaches

It is a well-established club, a well-run football club, so I am looking forward to getting my teeth into it and obviously the job is to make sure we get wins and get ourselves up the league.

Moyes - relegated with Sunderland last season - has been tasked with keeping West Ham in the Premier League.

Fanatik report Fenerbahce are interested in the former West Ham manager if they look to replace current coach Aykut Kocaman.

The Hammers dropped into the Premier League relegation zone following Saturday's 4-1 defeat to Liverpool.

"He is highly regarded and respected within the game and will bring fresh ideas, organization and enthusiasm", Sullivan added.

Moyes, 54, has been handed an initial six-month contract.

Puigdemont's lawyer in Brussels had previously said that his client plans to fight extradition to Spain without requesting political asylum.

A deal to that will last until the end of the campaign could prove to be beneficial to the Hammers, as the managers they previously reached out to did not want to break ties with their current clubs at the midway point, although it could be extended for a further two years should the Irons want to keep him.

But he faces a challenge to win round the fans after some supporters viewed his proposed arrival at the London Stadium with scepticism. I think my record would stand up to most.

He added: "I've managed five clubs since starting out almost 20 years ago at Preston and then going to Everton".

The Croatian's contract was up at the end of the season.

Bilic, who also played for West Ham, is the fourth Premier League managerial casualty of the season following the departures of Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer, Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare and Everton's Ronald Koeman.

Moyes' first match in charge will come after the global break, a trip to Watford in the Premier League on November 19.
