Report : Allardyce on West Ham manager shortlist
West Ham have drawn up their managerial short list to replace sacked manager Gianfranco Zola ... and one of the names on their list is Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce.
Sky Sports News are reporting that Allardyce is alongside other managers including Avram Grant, Dave Jones and Ian Holloway who they are seeking permission to speak to about the vacancy.
Allardyce is now settled at Rovers but West Ham are keen to appoint in due course and view Sam Allardyce as someone they would be keen to bring in.
But would the board let him go? Would Allardyce want to go to a club where money is even shorter than it is at Rovers?
Seems unlikely given all the ground work he has done at Ewood Park but it does make you think...
