The centre-back has been tracked by some of the Premier League’s biggest sides due to his impressive form for the Hammers this term and the fact his contract is approaching expiration.
Reid’s current deal at the Boleyn Ground expires in the summer and now there will be a battle to determine where the New Zealand international goes next.
The Daily Express reported back in October how the Gunners, Reds and United were keeping tabs on the 26-year-old as his contract negotiations with West Ham were going nowhere.
Reid is now free to start discussions with foreign clubs having entered the final six months of his deal, but if reports are to be believed the defender wants to stay in England.
With Allardyce having excepted that the New Zealander will no longer be part of his plans as of next campaign, he may now be open to allowing him to leave in the January transfer window.
