The former England defender Stuart Pearce will join Alan Irvine as David Moyes new assistant.
West Ham announced the news on Sunday evening and that Moyes is still not done as he still wants to recruit Billy McKinlay who is currently taking care of Sunderland.
“I’m really looking forward to coming in and getting involved,” Pearce told West Ham’s website.
“The opportunity to work with David Moyes, who I have respected greatly over the years, was a big factor, as was having previously played for the club.
“It’s been many years since I was there for a couple of seasons, but I really enjoyed my time. The West Ham fans were fantastic to me and I’m looking forward to coming back.
Welcome Alan Irvine, and welcome back Stuart Pearce! https://t.co/64Noqgna8O

“It’s tough times at the moment but it’s a fantastic opportunity for me. I’m really excited by the challenge.”
Irvine, on the other hand, is delighted to work with Moyes again as they already worked together during their time at Preston and Everton.
“I’m delighted to be given this opportunity and am really looking forward to the challenge ahead,” he said.
“I obviously know David well from our time together at Preston and Everton, and it was certainly a big attraction to work with him again, as was the thought of coming to a club like West Ham.
“This is the sixth job I have been offered since leaving Norwich at the end of last season – some of which were very attractive – but it’s the first one that has persuaded me to accept, so I hope that says a lot about how excited I am to be here.”
