West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce expects stiff competition for Wigan Athletic fullback Maynor Figueroa.

The defender is off contract at the end of the season.

"When you look at what he's done at Wigan - and like everyone else he's refused to sign a contract - there will be a lot of clubs interested in him," Allardyce said.

"We would be one of those clubs if that's the case."
