Despite Sky Sports insisting that West Ham wants David Moyes to stay next season and that his future at West Ham is in his own hands, 6foot2 understands his fate will be decided at the normal Hammers board end-of-season review.
Whether he sees out the final year of his contract will consider the feelings and thoughts of senior players within the West Ham squad.
Although it would be unfair to name them, several West Ham first-team players are said to prefer a change of manager next season.
Should Moyes remain in power next season, they could ask to leave West Ham or even put in a transfer request over the summer.
Player power would be just one factor considered while reviewing the manager’s performance and whether he retained the full faith of the dressing room.
The progress in the Europa Confer League, the final league position and the reorganisation of transfer policy will be other factors considered.
