Sam Allardyce expects to be in charge of West Ham United next season.

The People says the 59-year-old boss has told friends he won't be quitting ahead of what will be the last year of his contract.

And unless there is a huge change of heart from co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold, Allardyce will be staying.

Sullivan and Gold conduct reviews at the end of every season with their managers in a practice they started at Birmingham City.

And there is little motivation for a change at the top, despite the split among supporters.
