West Ham confirm Allardyce as manager

West Ham United have a deal in place with Sam Allardyce.

The Daily Mail says the former Newcastle manager's advisors spent Tuesday thrashing out terms over the 56-year-old's move to Upton Park, which includes a substantial bonus for promotion.

Allardyce, 56, said: "I look forward to taking charge after I have had a family holiday. It's always difficult dealing with the aftermath of relegation but I want to get West Ham back into the Premier League as quickly as possible."

The Hammers hierarchy are completing the formalities to the deal which will see Allardyce replace Avram Grant.
