West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has said that there have been no bids for striker Ricardo Vaz Te from Premier League new boys Cardiff City, Sky Sports reports.

The 26-year-old arrived joined the Upton Park outfit in January last year after working with Allardyce at Bolton, and he helped the club return to the top flight with the winning goal in the 2-1 playoff victory over Blackpool.

The Portuguese front man has been linked with an exit from east London this summer, but Allardyce denied that the newly-promoted Welsh side have been in touch regarding a move.

“There’s no official bid from Cardiff for Ricardo Vaz Te. It always happens at this time of year – it’s just agents getting busy,” he said.

The club broke their transfer record earlier this summer, slashing £15million on Andy Carroll, but when asked whether there would be any further acquisitions, Allardyce was quick to dismiss the idea.

“Not unless the chairman has found some money he hasn’t told me about,” he said.

“I’ve got no more money left, so the squad I’ve got is the squad I’ve got.”

Vaz Te has made 47 appearances for West Ham, scoring 15 goals.
