Sullivan admits West Ham still some days away from confirming manager

West Ham United remain a few days away from naming their new manager.

The London Evening Standard says co-owner David Sullivan confirmed yesterday that the club should be in a position to announce their new manager in the "next 72 hours".

Former Bolton, Newcastle and Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce is widely expected to succeed Avram Grant as the newly-relegated club's manager after revealing that things had been agreed "in principle".

Dave Jones's dismissal by Cardiff prompted late speculation that he was a rival to Allardyce but the indications today are that the 56-year-old remained firm favourite to take the £1.25million-a-year job.
