Rising Ipswich Town manager Kieran McKenna is reportedly 'under consideration' to replace David Moyes at West Ham United. The Northern Ireland man is one of several names being linked with the post.

McKenna is currently trying to steer Ipswich to successive promotions, this time to the Premier League. The Tractor Boys currently sit inside the automatic promotion spots in the Championship.

They emerged from League One last season to book their place in the second tier, but now their targets are set on the top flight in what would be another remarkable achievement for Fermanagh native McKenna.

Moyes' current contract at the London Stadium is due to expire this summer, and it remains to be seen if the Hammers will offer the Scot a new deal following a disappointing campaign.

It is claimed there is a £4m release clause on McKenna's Ipswich deal. The 37-year-old is currently in his first job as a first-team manager after his previous spells as coach.

McKenna left Manchester United in December 2021 to join Ipswich Town.
