Sam Allardyce will find out whether he has a future as West Ham manager on Monday, but he will be on his way to Spain.

The former Newcastle boss, who is currently preparing the Hammers to face his old side on Sunday afternoon, is out of contract at the end of the season.

And while his agent undergoes talks with the West Ham owners about the manager’s future Allardyce will be flying to Spain to spend half term with his grandchildren.

“It’ll be all sorted on Monday one way or another,” he explained.

“My agent will be available to speak to the owners because I will take the only opportunity I have to go away with my grandchildren so I’ll be shooting off to Spain to see them and whatever will be will be.

“Hopefully it is not my final game but we’ll wait and see. The full situation will be resolved next week and we’ll take it from there.”

The 60-year-old has been in charge of West Ham since 2011.
