David Moyes has left West Ham after a six-month reign as manager, the Premier League club have announced.

West Ham said today they hope to appoint a "high-calibre" successor within the next ten days.

Moyes reached the end of his short-term contract with the club at the end of the season.

Joint-chairman David Sullivan said: "I would like to place on record my sincere thanks to David Moyes and his staff for achieving the target of keeping West Ham United in the Premier League."

Everton are also looking for their fourth permanent manager in two years after Sam Allardyce was sacked earlier today.

The 63-year-old was brought in as Ronald Koeman's replacement in November to steer the club away from potential relegation trouble, eventually guiding the club to eighth in the Premier League.

However, Allardyce was an unpopular choice with fans from the outside and with the atmosphere at Goodison Park becoming toxic in the latter stages of the season as fan discontent grew the Toffees boss has been jettisoned with 12 months still remaining on his contract.

Albion revealed a new three-year contract for boss Chris Hughton yesterday after he kept the club in the Premier League on their return to the top flight.
