West Ham will give David Moyes the opportunity to decide his own future if he leads the club to Europa Conference League glory.
The Scot’s future has been under scrutiny for several months and the club’s owner have on three separate occasions been close to calling time on his reign this season due to the team’s poor form in the Premier League.
Similarly, the Hammers, who are considering Tim Steidten for their new director of football role, have also been profiling potential candidates for a new boss this summer in the anticipation of Moyes leaving.
Marco Silva, Graham Potter, Brendan Rodgers and Paulo Fonseca are among the managers West Ham have considered.
However, the club’s euphoric run to the Europa Conference League final has seen the initial plan for a new manager to be in situ in time for pre-season stall.

Sources have indicated it would be ‘impossible’ for West Ham to initiate Moyes’ exit if he leads the club to their first trophy since 1980.
Chairman David Sullivan will hold talks with Moyes at the end of the season regardless of the outcome of their clash against Fiorentina in Prague on June 7.
But it is likely Moyes will have the opportunity to see out the final year of his contract if West Ham win only their second European trophy in their history.
It maybe that Moyes, 60, decides to walk away from the London Stadium in the close season regardless of how the season finishes.
But if his team can win the UEFA tournament then it is highly unlikely that he will be pushed to leave.
Meanwhile, the club are pushing ahead with their plan to appoint a director of football with former Bayer Leverkusen chief Steidten among the contenders.
Other contenders include Lee Dykes of Brentford and Paul Mitchell, who is leaving his role at Monaco.
The new appointment will work alongside sporting director Mark Noble. The planned restructuring could have an impact on Moyes’ future.
