League target Pearce named as West Ham assistant coach

Now Sport report the former Watford manager could leave Espanyol at the end of the current season, and take up a job at West Ham.

Pearce returns to the club he made 50 appearances for after 16 years alongside Alan Irvine as Moyes' assistant coaches.

Moyes has started to put his backroom team together with former Norwich City assistant Alan Irvine joining, while Billy McKinlay, now at Sunderland in a caretaker capacity, is expected to follow suit.

Last season, Irvine joined Norwich as assistant manager to Alex Neil - now PNE boss.

Pearce had a spell with West Ham as a player and has fond memories of his treatment from the Hammers faithful.

"I'm delighted to be given this opportunity and am really looking forward to the challenge ahead, Irvine told the Hammers official website".

During his introductory interview on Wednesday, Moyes revealed that he had already spoken to Pearce, who has previously managed West Ham as well as the England under 21 national team.

"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".

"It's not going to be easy, no one is expecting it to be, because the stakes are very high in the Premier League, but I think with the staff here and the squad of players, we have a great chance".

"I don't think they've got enough men, I think every player has got five per cent more to give and David Moyes has got to find that".

"It's been many years since I was there for a couple of seasons, but I really enjoyed my time".

"It's tough times at the moment but it's a fantastic opportunity for me".

"The media work has been good for me, but I really feel that I've got something to offer the coaching set-up here".
