    • West Ham seriously considering paying £6m release clause
    • Newcastle manager is their first choice to replace David Moyes

    West Ham are ready to make a formal approach for Rafael Benítez and are giving serious consideration to triggering the £6m release clause in the Newcastle United manager’s contract.

    Benítez is the first choice to replace David Moyes but West Ham want to keep their options open and retain a strong interest in Manuel Pellegrini. While they have denied a report in Chile claiming that the former Manchester City coach is set to be unveiled in London, they want to speak to him. Newcastle’s manager, however, remains West Ham’s No 1 choice and there is increasing concern on Tyneside that Benítez will move if he receives a satisfactory offer.

    David Sullivan promised a ‘high-profile’ appointment but having already lost out on one, the co-owner has to get it right this time

    Even as late as Tuesday night, David Moyes had the backing of one of West Ham’s owners. But when David Gold appeared on Sky Sports News to throw his support behind Moyes, his words only heightened the growing uncertainty. A day earlier, after all, David Sullivan had met Shakhtar Donetsk’s Paulo Fonseca at his Essex mansion and that left Moyes feeling he had to take matters into his own hands.

    Sullivan, not Gold, is the man who holds the power at West Ham. He was the one on the other end of the phone when Moyes said he no longer had any interest in extending his contract and he is the one promising the club will make a “high-calibre” appointment by the end of next week. After two turbulent seasons at the London Stadium, the pressure has gone up another level.
