West Ham priority is Allardyce deal - not Redknapp return
West Ham United's priority is to secure manager Sam Allardyce to a new deal.
The London Evening Standard says Allardyce could sign a new deal as early as next month, providing the club ensure their safety in the Premier League.
There have been rumours that Harry Redknapp could return as manager next season should Queens Park Rangers be relegated and much may depend on Allardyce's demands when talks begin on a new deal. It is understood, though, that the Hammers are optimistic that Allardyce will stay.
