As the rumours of Sam Allardyce’s imminent sacking intensify, one thing more noticeable is the silence from the club surrounding this story.
On previous occasions David Gold has been quick to confirm or deny such reports on Twitter – but so far has stayed quiet on the matter. One may have thought that a statement to deny such rumours would have been placed on the clubs official website, but no. Silence.
Maybe there is truth to this story, first issued by the Daily Mail, that Allardyce is indeed on his way out. One thing is for certain, the longer the club say nothing on this matter, the more likely it looks that Sam is off.
In the mean time, West Ham have been linked with a summer move for Metz striker Diagra Sakho. The 6ft 1in hitman is reportedly the subject of a £2m bid.
