Blackburn Rovers chairman John Williams has dismissed West Ham United's interest in manager Sam Allardyce.

Allardyce is reported to be on a four-man shortlist to succeed Gianfranco Zola at Upton Park, along with Avram Grant, Dave Jones, Ian Holloway.

But Williams says the Hammers are yet to make a move for his man - and won't be encouraging them to do so.

He told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph: "There's been no approach and we wouldn't welcome any approach."
