West Ham boss Sam Allardyce is puzzled at reports of a possible move for former Newcastle striker Obafemi Martins in January.

Martins, who currently plies his trade in America with Major League Soccer side Seattle Sounders, has been mentioned as a possible target to bolster their attacking options.

"I haven't heard anything about Oba," said Allardyce. "He's playing in America at the moment.
