Newcastle United's Rafa Benitez targeted by West Ham

Abel Hernandez could be heading to Leeds

David Sullivan, addressing the fanbase via a statement posted on West Ham United's website on Thursday evening stated that the club were "preparing to appoint a manager who has a proven record of success at the highest level of the game". The club and David Moyes went their separate ways this week, and the team will be actively seeking his replacement.

Pellegrini has been a long-time target for the Hammers who are on the hunt for their third manager in six months after opting not to hand Moyes a new contract.

The former Liverpool boss reportedly has a £6 million buy-out clause in his contract and is desperately seeking assurances about the club's transfer policy before committing.

"The priority has to be to convince Rafael Benitez to stay because even the fans would understand if he walked away due to lack of funding again", Thompson told Sky Sports.

Benitez would demand a similarly high level of work-rate from the Austrian global, if he did make the move from Newcastle. He's an ambitious man, an industrious man and he's got great ideas.

West Ham have had their own issues with ownership, ones where tempers reached a fever pitch during the 2017-18 season.

"Where do you wanna be?"

Shakhtar Donetsk coach Paulo Fonseca has ended talks with West Ham.

"Will it be a relegation battle?"

Newcastle finished an impressive 10th on their return to the Premier League, despite a net spend of just £11.7m last summer.

Although he is resisting the temptation to leave, Benitez would be intrigued by the West Ham job if he can not reach a satisfactory agreement with Newcastle.
