David Moyes has signed a new three-year contract as West Ham manager.
Moyes, who is in his second spell in charge of the Hammers, led the club to a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League last season, securing Europa League qualification.
West Ham had held negotiations with Moyes over a new deal prior to the end of the campaign, before the Scot emerged as a candidate for a return to Everton following the departure of Carlo Ancelotti.
“I am delighted to have committed my future to West Ham United,” said Moyes.
“This is where I want to be and I’m happy. I’m excited to be given this opportunity to build on what we all have already achieved here. The owners and I are fully aligned with how we want to keep developing and improving the football club.
“The board and everyone at the club have been fantastic to work with, giving me great support and I feel that we are all united in what we want to achieve in the coming years and how we might be able to achieve those things.”
Moyes also said he was determined to “keep pushing boundaries” at the London Stadium.
“We have made tremendous progress in the past 15 months and that has been a collective effort from everyone at the club,” the Scot added.
“The players really have been superb but the challenge is for our standards to continue developing.”
