West Ham manager Sam Allardyce signs a new two-year contract

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has signed a new two-year contract with the Premier League club.

The news was announced by Hammers co-owner David Gold via his Twitter account.

"I am delighted to announce that our manager Sam Allardyce has signed a new two year contract," Gold said.

Allardyce's future at Upton Park had been in question despite his insistence over the last couple of months that he would be signing a new deal 'very soon' after productive talks with Gold and David Sullivan.

However, the 58-year-old indicated at his press conference ahead of Sunday's game at Everton that he was ready to sign and he has now put pen to paper.

Allardyce said on Friday: "There were processes we had to go through and put it together in the right way, which it has now. I never thought there would be any problem - and there hasn't.

"There has been some issue with the legal jargon in the contract which I couldn't understand so that has to go to both sides lawyers to agree and then it gets signed. The size of a manager's contract is pretty substantial in terms of responsibilities."

Allardyce took charge of West Ham on an initial two-year contract on June 1, 2011, guiding them to promotion from the Championship via the play-offs last season and a comfortable 10th place in the Premier League this term.
