Allardyce in contract talks with West Ham
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has ended the speculations about his future, revealing he is in the advanced stage of contract negotiations with the club.
‘Big Sam’ is expected to sign a three-year contract worth of £9 million, which will make him one of Premier League top-earning managers. The deal will keep Allardyce at Boleyn Ground until 2016, when West Ham are scheduled to move into the Olympic Stadium. Allardyce will be also offered a huge war chest to sign the players topping his wish list.
It is to be recalled that West Ham managed to promote to the Premier League from Championship in the first year. They are also firmly on course of retaining their Premier League status this season, lying in the 14th spot with 33 points, six points above the relegation zone with 8 games to go.
Allardyce said: “We both want to do it, it’s just a question of sorting out the dotting of the Is and crossing of the Ts. As always, that is not as easy a situation as you would like. You always have to do some negotiations when you are moving into the next contract, just as there were plenty of negotiations over the first contract. So we will hopefully come to a conclusion very shortly.”
