Bilic on the Irons speculation

Slaven Bilic has dismissed reports linking him with West Ham declaring them as “as baseless rumours.”

And the former Boleyn hero – constantly linked with a 200px-Slaven_BilićHammers return – has made it clear there has been no offer from the club

The Beskitas boss told Sprotske Novosti: “I really do not know why I’m being linked with them.

“I guess rumours like that are just part of this sport. I played there, now I’m a manager and it is not the first time that people are talking about me. They did that even when I was the Croatia manager.

“But the reality is that I’m just thinking about Besiktas and the work I’m doing there. I’m spending all my energy for Besiktas.”

Bilic still has two-years left on his deal and recently hinted that he could extend his contract at the end of the season.
