Sam Allardyce insists he has not been approached about replacing Avram Grant as West Ham United manager.
Speculation continues to grow that former Chelsea and Portsmouth boss Grant will be relieved of his duties this week, with reports at the weekend suggesting the Israeli was to be axed following the loss to Arsenal, with Martin O’Neill lined up to replace him.
Allardyce, surprisingly sacked by Blackburn Rovers last month, has also been linked with the post, but the 56-year-old insists he has not been approached by the London club, telling Sky Sports News: “No word from West Ham.”
And when asked about his interest in taking over at Upton Park, the former Bolton Wanderers and Newcastle United boss added: “I am not prepared to answer that question.
“Avram has not been released from his position so it is not for me to speculate on that.”
