West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce knows clubs want Momo Diame.

Diame's performances for the Hammers have seen him linked with a number of clubs, especially given that he has a release clause in his contract, but Allardyce reckons he would rather deal with bids for his player in the transfer window than have him sidelined.

"I would sooner have that aggravation in January where people trying to get him than lose him for the period of time, eight-12 weeks," he said.

"In my experience, I have had a number of hamstring injuries myself in my time, when you go down like that you know you have really got (a bad) one.

"We will wait until it has settled down and then scan it, we will find out exactly how big the damage is and move on from there."
