West Ham United reveal that they are seeking to appoint "a manager who has a proven record of success at the highest level of the game" within the next seven days.

West Ham United have informed fans that they are close to appointing a "high-calibre" head coach.

The Hammers are looking for their fourth manager since 2015 after David Moyes was dismissed on Wednesday.

Newcastle United boss Rafael Benitez, who has previously managed the likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Napoli, has been linked with the West Ham hotseat.

On Thursday evening, a statement on the official Hammers site claimed that "a manager who has a proven record of success at the highest level of the game" will be hired within the next seven days.

"West Ham United would like to assure supporters that the board are extremely confident of appointing a high-calibre first-team manager, who has a proven record both in the Premier League and European football," read the statement.

"The club expect to make an announcement within the next seven days, following a thorough and strategic process that has identified the best possible candidates."

Joint chairman David Sullivan said: "I would like to reassure our supporters that we have left no stone unturned in selecting the individual we believe is the right man to take West Ham United forward.

"We have followed a process that is progressing entirely to plan and are now very close to reaching an agreement. This is an exciting time for our football club. We are preparing to appoint a manager who has a proven record of success at the highest level of the game."

West Ham finished 13th in the Premier League table this season, nine points clear of the dropzone.
