West Ham boss Allardyce: Reid can leave, if you pay...

West Ham United have slapped a £20 million price-tag on Winston Reid.

Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool are all monitoring Reid's situation and weighing up January bids. His contract expires in June.

Allardyce said: "He is not going anywhere unless someone bids £20m or something like that.

"There is obviously not a lot I can do about that if that happens.

"If somebody flirts around with a measly offer because he is in the last year of his contract, we would make more money by keeping him and finishing where we are in the league than selling him and putting our good season in jeopardy.

"Because replacing him in January - replacing anybody in January - is a very difficult job indeed."

He added: "In the end, I just hope he decides what is happening this season here has a telling factor on the decision that he makes in the end and it is not just money."
