LONDON (AP) David Moyes has left West Ham after the Premier League club opted against giving the manager a new deal.

Moyes was hired in November on a short-term contract and managed to keep West Ham in England's top division.

West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan says the club now feels "it is right to move in a different direction" and intends to hire a new manager "within the next 10 days."
