Piquionne not off

Sam Allardyce has dismissed reports that Freddie Piquionne is set for a loan move to Championship strugglers Doncaster.

Earlier in the week agent Willie McKay had insisted that the two clubs were liaising with regards to a potential loan move for the unwanted forward for the remainder of the season.

However Hammers boss Allardyce, speaking ahead of West Ham's planned trip to Peterborough this weekend insisted that no seuch deal had been struck - nor was on the cards.

"At the moment we've had one or two enquiries about one or two of our players on loan," said Allardyce, "but nothing has been okayed up until now."

Piquionne was made surplus to requirements following a dreadfully disappointing first half of the season in which he managed to score just TWO goals in 21 appearances.

Now 33, the French striker has been told that he has no future at the club - despite being contracted to the Hammers until the summer of 2013, having signed a three-year contract when moving from Portsmouth in 2010.
