West Ham United and Stoke City are both considerable interest in Fulham's Steve Sidwell according to the Daily Mail.

The 31-year old midfielder is out of contract with the relegated Cottagers next month and could remain in the Premier League with both the Hammers and the Potters keen.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes managed Sidwell at Fulham in 2010/11 and is hoping to lure the former Reading, Chelsea and Aston Villa man to the Britannia Stadium this summer.

Allardyce is a big fan of Sidwell and reportedly wants to bring him across London from Craven Cottage to Upton Park once his Fulham deal expires.
