Allardyce confirms talks with Blackburn over Olsson
West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has confirmed the club are chasing the signature of Sweden defender Martin Olsson from Championship Blackburn Rovers. The Hammers have long been linked with a move for Olsson as Allardyce knows him well from his time in charge at Ewood Park.
A figure of around £7million for the £24 year old has been reported in the media but Allardyce dismissed that number and said: "I don't think that's true, no.
"Negotiations are ongoing."
