West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has dropped his interest in Tottenham defender William Gallas.

The Mirror says the Hammers have pulled OUT of a move for veteran Gallas.

It had been believed Frenchman Gallas would be keen to cut his losses with new signing Jan Vertonghen poised to take his place at White Hart Lane.

But the exorbitant wage demands of Gallas are proving too much for Hammers who have decided to look elsewhere.
