Big Sam will be looking for a new job at the end of the season.
West Ham vice-chairman Karen Brady hold told manager Sam Allardyce that he will not be offered an extension of his current deal that expires at the end of the season, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Big Sam’s future has been under scrutiny all season, as reports of the club weighing up approaches for the likes of David Moyes and former defender Slaven Bilic gather pace.
Despite the club’s good form this term Allardyce has cut an unpopular figure at Upton Park during his tenure, and was roundly booed by fans during their 4-0 FA Cup exit to West Brom last weekend.
“Sam Allardyce knows there will be no contract talks with him until the end of the season,” Brady said.
“That is the way this West Ham board have always done it, that is what we’ve agreed with Sam – and that’s exactly the way we did it the last time his contract expired.
“But our confidence in him is underlined by the signing of Nene. Sam wanted him because Andy Carroll has had knee surgery.”
