West Ham United are now odds on favourites to sign former David Moyes favourite midfielder Marouane Fellaini according to bookmakers.
According to Ladbrokes, they have placed Moyes to sign his former prized player for an astonishing third time, putting Fellaini at as low as 7/2 to make the move to the London Stadium after the New Year.
The Scottish boss has previously twice signed Fellaini, first for Everton when he hijacked him away from Standard Liege in 2008, and later to signed to Manchester United in 2013 when Moyes took over as reins of the club from Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.
Moyes, who was appointed as the Hammers new boss earlier in the month, will be looking to strengthen his squad in January after what has been a tough start to the season for the East London club.
West Ham have won just two of their twelve Premier League matches this season, and currently sit 18th in the Premier League.
Despite Moyes’ almost comical reputation, it seems the Hammers faithful would be happy to see him come to East London.

I would, the question is why has he rejected a contract? If it’s money I’m not sure we can compete with Man Utd.

Everyone knows David Moyes loves bringing in players he’s managed before. In that case David, I will take Ross Barkley & Fellaini at West Ham please. No Pienaar.
