Former Cardiff City boss Malky Mackay is eyeing Sam Allardyce's job at West Ham United.

The People says Mackay will wait to see if the West Ham job comes up this summer after telling Nottingham Forest he is not interested in replacing Billy Davies.

If Sam Allardyce does part company with West Ham then Mackay's name will be in the frame.

The fans are ­demanding more expansive football than Allardyce's team have been giving them and former Hammers defender Mackay would have to convince co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold he could deliver that.
