After a poor spell that left the team suffering in the relegation zone of the Premier League, West Ham have sacked manager Slaven Bilic.
Bilic was appointed in June 2015 and has also played for the club. Following the departures Crystal Palace boss Frank de Boer, Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare and Everton's Ronald Koeman, Bilic is the fourth Premier League managerial casualty of the season.
In a statement, the club said: "West Ham United can confirm that Slaven Bilic has today left his position with the club."
Bilic commented on his departure, saying: "I expected it. There are no hard feelings. I can be very proud of my work here.
"We didn't start this crucial season well. As in many clubs across Europe, the manager is the one who pays the price. It's a very logical move. The fans were brilliant to me from the start until the end."
Meanwhile, West Ham have announced David Moyes as their new manager on a six-month contract.
According to BBC Sport, the “negotiations for the 54-year-old former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland boss to take over from the sacked Slaven Bilic progressed smoothly on Monday.”
Joint chairman David Sullivan said: "We need somebody with experience, knowledge of the Premier League and the players in it, and we believe David is the right man to turn things around and get the best out of the players at the club.
"He is highly regarded and respected within the game, and will bring fresh ideas, organisation and enthusiasm."
