West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has ruled out moving for free agent Samuel Eto'o.

The former Chelsea striker has been offered to the Hammers in recent weeks.

Allardyce said: "There has been a lot of talk about Samuel Eto'o.

"From our point of view the chairman was perhaps looking at a younger player.

"Samuel is still available and we have decided he should be considered at some stage if we're not successful (in signing a younger player)."
