West Ham board make decision on boss Grant
Grant set to stay in charge
After weeks of uncertainty and rumour West Ham have confirmed Avram Grant will be staying on as manager.
Martin O’Neill and Sam Allardyce had been heavily linked to the post over the past month, with O’Neill allegedly approached.
However the Hammers released a statement this morning backing the current boss, where they also slammed reports in a national paper relating to director Karen Brady.
The statement read: West Ham United categorically deny the allegations made in today’s Daily Mirror with regard to Karren Brady, the club’s Vice-Chairman.

The club are committed to retaining Avram Grant as manager and have identified potential transfer targets to give us the best possible chance of retaining Premier League status.
