West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has insisted that there is "no problem" regarding his future at the club despite a lack of talks over an extension to his expiring contract.
The 58-year-old’s current deal concludes at the end of the season, and co-chairman David Gold recently revealed negotiations would not take place until the Hammers are clear from relegation.

"There’s no problem," he told reporters. "We’ll talk once our [Premier League] status is secure.
"Some owners pull the trigger early but it is not like that here."
West Ham currently sit 11th following defeat at relegation-threatened Aston Villa on Sunday.
Next up for the Upton Park outfit is a London derby with Andre Villas-Boas' Tottenham, before a tough run that sees them play Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City in their following eight fixtures.
