Talksport has released new details on David Moyes’ West Ham future in a report making a claim he could now be sacked.
It means the Hammers have failed to win in seven games since the turn of the year.
And the club has dropped out of the top six and are freefalling into midtable after shipping nine goals in two games without reply.

Talksport release new details on Moyes’ future
Now limp defeats to Man United and Arsenal – two sides West Ham beat well back in December – have seen the spotlight cast over the future of David Moyes once again.
Moyes revealed last week he expects to renew talks over a new West Ham deal soon with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.
And the top source inside West Ham confirmed the club still intends to extend Moyes’ stay in a recent Hammers News exclusive.
It seems the heavy defeat to Arsenal has changed the landscape, though, if a new report is to be believed.

Fresh Moyes sack claim made
There has been claim and counter claim again in the last 24 hours.
And on Monday evening, Talksport claims Moyes has been given four games to save his job.
“David Sullivan is now less certain about keeping the Scottish boss beyond the end of the season,” Talksport state.
“Sullivan is also said to be concerned by a growing negativity towards Moyes from Hammers fans. That said, it’s understood that Moyes will be given time to reverse West Ham’s fortunes.
“The club’s next four games will go a long way in deciding his fate with those fixtures all against teams in the bottom seven in the Premier League table.”

Four games to save his job?
West Ham travel to Nottingham Forest next. And anyone who has watched Nuno Espirito Santo’s side lately will know they have been playing well, especially as an attacking force.
The Hammers then host bogey side Brentford – never an easy game, especially with Ivan Toney back leading the line.
And then comes a tough trip to Everton before Burnley come to the London Stadium.
Before the turn of the year West Ham would have relished those fixtures. And they would have been targeting 10-12 points.
Now it is difficult to see where the next win is coming from.
Talksport have a couple of individuals with very close ties to the West Ham ownership. So this new claim may well have legs.
