Sam Allardyce has received no new contract offer offers or been encouraged to believe one is on the way from West Ham United.
Club insiders are shrugging off a Daily Telegraph report which claims the manager the club made an approach to their manager recently with a new two year deal potentially on offer which was was declined.”
But according to our best insider that, element of the the story is simply not true and the report has been immediately shrugged off.
We were told firmly: “No offer has ever been made and therefore none has been turned down. AS EVER, the situation will be reviewed in the summer.”
ClaretandHugh’s analyst and pundit Leroy Rosenior writes: The only conclusion you can draw from all of this is that West Ham and Sam Allardyce will not be together next season.
Talks about a new deal don’t happen inside a couple of days, weeks or even months. Had the Hammers wanted to keep him, talks would have started around Christmas particularly as the team HAD been doing so well.
It seems to me the club may be trying to keep him on ice in case they don’t find anyone to fill the job but Sam will know by now what’s going on and I simply can’t see him accepting that. We all have our pride.
He won’t be short of a club because he’s seen as someone who keeps teams in the Premier League. He may well be preparing his next move.
“I’ve felt for sometime it’s all over between both sides and this latest situation only reinforces that.”
