Allardyce: West Ham owners won't rush contract talks

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce insists he won't let contract speculation unsettle him.

Even Allardyce acknowledges that his employers have made no mention of a new contract when his current deal runs out at the end of this season.

"They won't be rushed," he told the Daily Mail. "That's what they want to do and I'm comfortable with that. Just as I was the last time we negotiated. If we continue to do well then it shouldn't be a problem. And if it goes well I'd like to carry on, of course. I don't lose any sleep over it. I didn't last time and I won't this time.

"The only downside is that it leads to speculation. But that doesn't worry me either. When David (Gold) and David (Sullivan) are ready I'm sure we will talk about it."
