West Ham agree deal with former Wolves boss Lopetegui

West Ham have agreed a deal in principle with Julen Lopetegui to take over from David Moyes as manager.

Lopetegui has been out of work since leaving Wolves three days before the start of the 2023/24 season but has continued to live in England in a bid to return to Premier League management.

The 57-year-old, who has also managed Porto, Spain, Real Madrid and Sevilla throughout an illustrious coaching career, looks set to take charge at the London Stadium at the end of the season after Moyes' expected departure.

Moyes is out of contact in the summer and has faced increased questions about his future as West Ham have only won one of their previous nine Premier League games and were thrashed 5-0 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

After the game, Moyes was asked whether he had any frustration about the club's links with other managers, he said: "I'll talk to the board at the end of the season. We'll do that then."
