Portsmouth can still call on Stuart Pearce after West Ham owners 'block' London Stadium return with David Moyes

That’s after the former England and Nottingham Forest defender revealed West Ham's owners had blocked his return to the London Stadium as part of new manager David Moyes' backroom team.

However, he was critical of the Hammers following their decision to replace the ex-Everton and Manchester United boss with Manuel Pellegrini at the end of that campaign.

And, speaking on TalkSport, the 57-year-old said that has played a part in him not being included in the new coaching set-up at West Ham.

I think the owners felt I was a little bit critical of the regime when we left last time and put the block on it.

His Pompey presence operates on an ad-hoc basis, appearing roughly every fortnight, providing another voice on the training pitch through involvement in sessions.

Pearce oversaw additional work carried out by central defensive pair Christian Burgess and Sean Raggett.
