West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce wants to stay.

Allardyce, whose contract runs out in the summer, has been told talks on his future are on hold until West Ham's top-flight status is secured.

He said: "Staying in the Premier League is EVERYTHING about my future.

"I think that's all I've had to say over the last few weeks.

"It's the best league in the world. It's where I want to be, it's where I want to ply the skills of my trade.

"If you're plying your trade in the best domestic league in the world then that's what you want to do."
