West Ham boss Allardyce holding back player contract talks

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce won't open new contract talks with his players until the team is assured of Premier League safety.

Hammers stars Matt Taylor, Jack Collison, George McCartney, Joe Cole and Jussi Jaaskelainen will all see their current deals expire at the end of the season.

Allardyce said: "There's more than Matt Taylor who is out. There's a load of them. But contracts won't be talked about until we are safe. I haven't made any decisions yet."
