Former England coach Glenn Hoddle is being linked with Sam Allardyce's job at West Ham United.

The Mail on Sunday says Hoddle is the shock name on West Ham's radar if The Hammers are locked in the bottom three by Christmas.

The club's hierarchy are aware that three seasons ago they made a mistake with Avram Grant by staying loyal for too long and paid the price of relegation.

At this stage there has been no open talk amongst members of the West Ham hierarchy about parting company with Allardyce.
