Sam linked with Fulham job

The Pakistani-American billionaire owner Shahid Khan plans to tempt Bruce away from Hull with a bumper contract to guide Fulham back into the Premier League. Khan, owner of American NFL side Jacksonville Jaguars, is one of the world’s wealthiest businessmen with a net worth of $4.6 billion.

But the Mirror claims Khan could turn his attention to Sam Allardyce if he fails to land Bruce. Sam isn’t due to discuss a new contract until the end of the season but has said to be relaxed about his future at West Ham.

The Fulham job is thought to be worth a £3m-a-year deal, topped up with a £2m promotion bonus. After promotion Fulham would be prepared to pay £4m-a-year plus a further £1m-a-year bonus for keeping them in the Premier League. That kind of money deal would most likely interest Sam and be a deal that West Ham are unlikely to match in future contract negotiations.

  1. BFS is relaxed about his future at West Ham… I hope he’s relaxed because he knows he will leave our club at the end of the seson… BFS, if you need a ride to go to Fulham I’m here. The important thing is not to see your fat face anymore here at West Ham!

  2. Some good news for a change!

  3. if only it was true same here if you need a ride call me i do it for free

  4. Be careful what you wish for. Look what happens to sams teams after he leaves them. He has ingrained himself and his own staff at every level of the club from his most recent recruit teddy sheringham all the way down. When he leaves they all go with him. Our club would be decimated. Training at chadwell Heath would have to be taken by the tea lady who incidentally loves Sam allardyce because she says he has the same way about him as john Lyall had when he was there.
