David Moyes to signal new West Ham contract amid Everton hyperlink
In football they say you should never go back, but that is especially true for managers and not for players.
It’s quite common for a player to return to a former club towards the end of his career to enjoy his final years, but there aren’t many examples where a manager returns to a club and agrees with what he did before .
David Moyes made his name at Everton after doing a great job at Preston but was forced to rebuild his reputation after some disastrous times at Man United and Real Sociedad.
If anything, he’s built a managerial reputation that would probably keep you in the Premier League at the expense of joy on the field, but that changed last season when he brought West Ham close to a Champions League spot.
The Telegraph has reported that there was a prospect of a return to Everton as he was seen to replace Carlo Ancelotti, but that now looks impossible as they claim he has now landed a new three-year deal with West Ham.

Everton are a very different club now than they were when Moyes left as they have decent financial backing and are more likely to be expected to play attractive football in a job.
