Slaven Bilic's West Ham future under review at end of season

West Ham United's Croatian manager Slaven Bilic gestures on the touchline during the English Premier League football match between Stoke City and West Ham

West Ham will review manager Slaven Bilic's position at the end of the season, Sky Sports News HQ understands.

Bilic has just over a year left on his three-year contract, with talks scheduled to take place about extending his deal midway through the season postponed after a series of disappointing results.

West Ham's move from Upton Park to the London Stadium has not gone smoothly, with injuries to key players having regularly disrupted his plans and several of the club's new signings have struggled to make an impact.

Bilic also had to put up with the disruptive behaviour of Dimitri Payet before he was sold back to Marseille in January.

This campaign has been especially disappointing compared to last season when West Ham finished seventh and said goodbye to Upton Park with a 3-2 victory against Manchester United.

Bilic's side are not yet mathematically safe from the threat of relegation and they have three difficult games left to play, at home to Tottenham and Liverpool and away at Burnley.
