David Sullivan: West Ham 'very close' to appointing new manager

Fonseca turns down West Ham

West Ham fans are widely known to have a lack of faith in their board and their ability to splash the cash on quality, but for once, if they could get their hands on someone in the mould of Benitez, or even the man himself, supporters would have very little to complain about.

The club will also be looking to bring in West Brom captain Jonny Evans for around £3million the paper said.

The Scottish coach restored a work ethic that had been lacking at West Ham, including getting the best out of Marko Arnautovic by reinventing him as a lone striker.

The move comes after Sam Allardyce, a former West Ham manager, was also sacked by Everton.

Firstly, I don't think there is any chance of Rafa Benitez going to West Ham.

But it serves to highlight Benitez's frustration that such a scenario has been talked about since last summer.

Former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini, who is managing Chinese side Hebei China Fortune, and Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez are the bookmakers' favourites for the post. We're making ready to nominate a supervisor who has a confirmed file of success on the highest stage of the sport'. Hopefully Mike can keep his word and we can do what we want to do.

Benitez, although, believes the next switch spend of round £40m fell in need of that promise and was irritated on the size of time taken to finish offers.

The Telegraph claim Benitez still doesn't know how much money he'll have to spend over the summer - and this has "infuriated" him.

Ashley has once more pledged to provide Benitez "each final penny the membership generates" after he guided them to a 10th-placed end, with the proprietor insisting he would reject any method for the supervisor.
