West Ham United boss Avram Grant faces the sack if they are relegated.

The Sunday Mirror says aside from being weighed down by enormous debt, the club will also be looking to appoint a new manager following the abject reign of Avram Grant.

The ongoing uncertainty over the future of Neil Warnock at QPR will make the king of promotions a prime target among a list that includes the out-of-work ex-Newcastle boss Chris Hughton, Cardiff's Dave Jones and Blackpool boss Ian Holloway.

The club will try to persuade Martin O'Neill to replace Grant if they manage a miracle and escape relegation.
