West Ham hold talks with Zorro over replacing Moyes

West Ham held initial talks with Paulo Fonseca on Monday over replacing David Moyes as their manager.

Moyes guided West Ham to safety after being appointed as Slaven Bilic’s successor in November.

It appears unlikely that the Scot will continue his reign beyond this season however, with West Ham already making plans for the future without him.

The Daily Mail report that Fonseca travelled to the home of West Ham co-owner David Sullivan for a 75-minute discussion on Monday evening.

There is ‘a lack of commitment’ from both sides with regards to Moyes staying at West Ham, and Shakhtar Donetsk manager Fonseca is one of two managers mentioned as attracting West Ham’s interest.

The other is former Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini, who is currently managing in the Chinese Super League.
