West Ham manager Sam Allardyce

Sam Allardyce will not be offered a new contract unless West Ham can stay in the Premier League, according to The Mail.

West Ham chairman Dave Gold has said that Big Sam must ensure the Hammers are still in the English top flight come May before they discuss a new contract with the manager.

“As David Sullivan and I  have always maintained, we will sit down and discuss Sam’s contract situation  once our Premier League status has been confirmed and not before,” he said.

“This is purely because the three of us don’t want anything to distract attention from our aim of finishing as high up the Premier League table as possible.”

Sam Allardyce took over at Upton Park at the beginning of last season and his current contract runs out in the summer. The Hammers are currently in a good position in the league in 11th place with 30 points but have only won one of their last six games.

After losing 2-1 to Villa on Sunday Dave Gold tweeted: “disappointed for the fans who travelled hundreds of miles on a miserable day to lose to a team in the bottom three. We should do better.”  He did however, reaffirm in a statement on the club’s website that he is pleased with Allardyce’s performance as manager.
