West Ham will offer Martin O’Neill a route back into Premier League management by offering the former Celtic and Aston Villa boss Avram Grant’s post as the Israeli prepares to be axed from his Upton Park post in the very near future.
Hammers co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold had stood by Grant through some very tough points in the season but the 5-0 mauling at St James’ Park is said to have been the final nail in the coffin and the east London club has been looking into potential replacements and are reportedly ready to approach the 58 year old Londonderry born manager the job.
O’Neill left his Aston Villa post in August and may well be interested in the job despite the fact that he will be ushered in to a relegation dog fight so any offer may be on a short team basis until the end of the season when a longer deal may be reached.
Others linked with the soon to be vacant Upton Park position include Sam Allardyce and Chris Hughton but the betting odds on O’Neill have been slashed today which would appear to add weight to the fact that an offer is about to be made to bring in the experienced boss.
