Sporting president Bruno de Carvalho says a move could be resurrected despite the bad blood left  between the clubs over the deal.

Moyes will take time to assess what he needs but Carvalho could be on his radar with only Pedro Obiang as a genuine holding midfielder.

The Hammers are also looking at £5million-rated Hajduk Split midfield ace Hamza Barry, 23, who has been watched by Everton and Watford.

The ‘no messing’ Moyes’ effect is already beginning to ring around the London Stadium.

He has blasted West Ham’s Marko Arnautovic and told the club’s record signing to become a “team player” if he wants to get into his side.

The Hammers splashed out a whopping £24million to bring the Austrian international to the capital from Stoke in the summer.

Said Moyes: “I watched him a lot at Stoke. I thought he looked like the sort of player you would never be keen to play against because of his power and strength and what he can do.

“But he also has to be a team player. The clips I have seen at times, he has not looked a team player.”
