The rather daft rumour started circulating earlier this afternoon but the Swansea boss was quick to kill it off via the BBC.
Monk has led the Swans to a record-equalling 47 Premier League points with six games left – four more than the Hammers.
Monk – in denying linkls to Upton Park – said: “West Ham have a fantastic manager in place. For them to be looking elsewhere – if they are – I think they’ve already got the manager there who’s had a fantastic season.
“I look at that type of speculation as a compliment to the way myself and the team have worked this season, showing we’re progressing and going in the right direction.”
