Allardyce rejected West Ham return

Sam Allardyce was offered the chance to return to West Ham in the wake of Slaven Bilic's dismissal - but rejected the approach.

The 63-year-old was Hammers boss from 2011 to 2015, before leaving the club upon the expiration of a two-year contract extension signed in May 2013.

And according to a source close to Allardyce, he was contacted by West Ham shortly before Bilic was given his marching orders to gauge whether there was any interest in a potential return to the club.

"He was offered big money to return", the source told KUMB. "But he turned it down straight away."

Allardyce, who has also been linked with the vacant positions at Everton and West Bromwich Albion is currently in Dubai weighing up his options.

During his four seasons at West Ham - one in the Championship and three in the Premier League - he led the team 181 times, winning 68 (37.6%), drawing 46 and losing 67 games.

Since leaving West Ham, Allardyce has worked for Sunderland, England (briefly) and Crystal Palace - managing to keep both clubs in the Premier League during his tenure.
