The former Manchester United boss had been expecting to hold talks with West Ham co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold to see about extending his stay at the club.
But the decision to speak with other potential managers left Moyes seething and he informed them he had no intention of returning to the job even if it was offered to him.
The Standard claim Moyes was told by Sullivan in a phone call on Monday that the club were contemplating a change because the fans were not happy.
And the co-owner says the club are now hoping to name his successor within the next ten days as the try to build quickly ahead of next season.
