West Ham manager Slaven Bilic will be offered a new contract at the end of the season if his team finish in the top eight.
The Hammers have endured a troubled campaign and were recently thrashed at home by Manchester City for the second time this season.
But they have won three of their last four matches and The Sun reckon that upturn might have put him on course for a new deal
A ‘London Stadium source’ is quoted as saying: “There’s nothing we want more than for Slaven to go onto his third year with us but we really do need to start seeing some decent performances.
“There have been some scrappy wins and we need to see some good football and stuff to please the fans. That’s important.
“Then we can go into next season free of any source of anxiety and think about another contract at the end of this one as has always been the case at this club.
“That was what we wanted to see and it was great to watch.
“It’s West Brom next and they are a good team but we have real confidence and if we continue like that a top eight finish is on.”
