The People says the Yorkshire clubâ€™s new Âowners believe the West Ham boss is the man to lead them back into the ÂPremier League.
Allardyce, 58, is out of contract at Upton Park at the end of the season and talks about a new deal are Âunderway, but his future has not been signed or sealed.
The former Bolton, Blackburn and Newcastle boss has shown in the past that he can guide clubs into the top flight and then, crucially, keep them there.
He won promotion to the ÂPremier League with Bolton and the Hammers.
He has also developed a reputation for making sure his teams punch above their weight when they reach the top flight.
