Former Manchester United boss David Moyes is the coach tipped to take over from Sam Allardyce in the wake of West Ham's disastrous preseason tour of New Zealand.

British media continue to be full of speculation about Allardyce's fate at the English Premier League club with the coach at odds with management over playing personnel and footballing style.

The unexpected losses to the Wellington Phoenix and Sydney FC in New Zealand last week have done Allardyce no favours.

Moyes, himself sacked last year by Manchester United after lasting just 10 months in the wake of Sir Alex Ferguson's departure, is now the name being bandied around to replace Allardyce.

Betting agency Paddy Power even entered the debate, installing Moyes as a 2/1 favourite to get the Hammers job.

Former Cardiff boss Malky Mackay is also reported to be in the running.

There has been strong speculation that Allardyce could even be sacked before the season starts.

West Ham chairman David Gold did little to dampen that today on social media.

Gold favourited a tweet from one fan which said: "Is today the day we get rid of BFS ?? @davidgold fingers crossed"

BFS is a commonly-used internet acronym for 'Big Fat Sam' - a derogatory label used by some fans against Allardyce.
