West Ham are now looking at potential candidates to replace Manuel Pellegrini, according to the Claret & Hugh. The website claims the Chilean will still be given more time to turn things around, but after seven games without a win, the Hammers board are considering alternatives.
Rafa Benitez was named as a contender by another source yesterday, but it is believed that the London club are eyeing former Brighton boss Chris Hughton and Burnley manager Sean Dyche as the two standout options.
Hughton played for West Ham for two years after leaving Tottenham in 1990, and he has been out of work since being sacked by the Seagulls at the end of last season.
Dyche, meanwhile, has guided Burnley to sixth in the table after two consecutive wins, with the Clarets five points and ten places above the Irons in the Premier League.
However, it must be said, neither manager plays the West Ham way, with both deploying a conservative brand of football.
