Sam Allardyce is set to learn whether he will be kept on as West Ham United manager later in May according to reports.

Sky Sports suggests that the Hammers board will decide by May 23 if Allardyce is to remain in his role for the 2014/15 Premier League season.

Allardyce met with co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan as well as chief executive Karren Brady on Tuesday, with the trio asking him to put forward his case as to why he should stay in his current job.

A deadline of May 23 has now been set for Allardyce, who took charge of the east London club in 2011, to learn his fate.
