West Ham United boss David Moyes has said he is looking to strengthen the midfield of his side and according to reports is targeting a move for Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

The Scottish manager has signed the Belgian international on two occasions; first as Everton boss in 2008 and as Man United manager in 2013. He is again looking to bring the ‘lanky’ midfielder to his present club West Ham United.

Fellaini’s future at Man United has come under speculations in recent times as he has refused to sign a new contract with the record Premier League winners with his current deal set to expire in June.

Despite being a much-maligned figure at Man United, he is a favourite of current manager Jose Mourinho – who is keen on the 30-year old putting pen to paper on a new deal with the club but has so far been unable to convince him to.

The former Standard Liege man has been quite clear about needing a new challenge way from Old Trafford but has so far failed to confirm his exit from the club.

He returned from a knee problem in United’s FA Cup win over Derby County earlier this month and will be up to selection when Stoke visit the home of the Red Devils.

David Moyes has since steadied the ship at WestHam since the sacking of Slaven Bilic and will be looking towards the future and is considering making Fellaini a part of that future.
