West Ham manager Sam Allardyce’s future has been up in the air for the last couple of months due to the fact that he has only a few months left on his current contract. The 58-year-old, though, has revealed that he has been having talks with the club over the possibility of extending the deal. However, it is understood that the former Bolton and Blackburn Rovers manager will sign a new deal only when West Ham’s position in the Premier league next season is confirmed. Even though the team are not in a relegation zone yet, there still remains a possibility of the London club being relegated back into the Championship.
There are just a few points about the relegation zone, and Allardyce has targeted 38 points before the end of the season in order to stay in the Premier league. There are only eight matches remaining in the content, and league football will resume this weekend after a break due to international football. Allardyce has also said that he would like to be the manager of the club when they completed the move to the Olympic stadium. West Ham were recently revealed as the successful bidders for the Olympics stadium, which can host up to 60,000 people.
“I suppose I could sign a contract that said if we get relegated then I don’t want it, but I won’t do that. We think we will be safe at 38 points. Then we can push on to 40 if we can. The contract negotiations are ongoing at this moment in time. We talk confidentially among ourselves and hopefully we can come to an agreement shortly. If I can last that long, I’d like to be here,” said Allardyce. The team will be hosting West Brom at Upton Park during the weekend.

The Premier league club West Brom have rejected a second offer from the strugglers QPR for the star striker Peter Odemwingie. West Brom are flying high in the table and the striker Peter Odemwingie has been one of the main reasons for their great form this season. The new QPR manager has apparently identified Odemwingie as the man to lead the attack for the Premier league strugglers, who sit bottom of the table. However, West from have rejected an offer for the player according to the technical director of the club, Richard Garlick. Garlick has also stated that the core players of the club are not for sale.
West Brom received an offer of £ 3 million for the striker last week, which was turned down immediately. QPR have been one of the active clubs in the last few transfer windows. They have recently brought in the French striker Remy on huge wages, while they are looking to do the same for Peter Odemwingie as well. The striker has been linked with several clubs over the last few transfer windows, but West Brom have resisted the opportunity to sell him. This has apparently made the striker extremely sad, who made his feelings known via his Twitter account.
“As we have repeatedly stated, we have no need or desire to sell our core players. Since we turned down Peter’s transfer request, he has made his position clear in a statement to the media and via his personal Twitter account. This matter will be dealt with internally,” said the technical director of the club. “At this stage of my career, this opportunity may not come around again. A new challenge, a new opportunity, and a chance to play under the stewardship of one of the most respected managers in the game Harry Redknapp,” said Peter Odemwingie on his Twitter account.
