It will bring to an end a successful four-and-a-half year period for the Hammers which saw them lift the Europa Conference League and regularly compete in the Europa League under the Scot.

“I’m really comfortable with the situation,” Moyes said ahead of his final home game in charge of the Irons against Luton.

“I’ve talked about it with my family, and I think it’s the right decision for all parties.

“We’ll go our separate ways after a really successful period.”

Time for a break

The 61-year-old says he will now take a break from management but is keen to remain in football – starting with a role with talkSPORT during this summer’s European Championship.

He said: “First, I’ll have a break. Last year there wasn’t much of a break after the Europa Conference League final.

“I strive to work my hardest, and I’ve done that here, so I’m going to have a break.

“I’m going to work during the Euros and I’ll continue to look forward to working in football.

“Stopping the club getting relegated the second time was difficult, and the progress we’ve made since then has been brilliant.

“I think we’ve done a really good job, we’ve built the club, and there’s stability there now.”
