Transfer news: Sam Allardyce is unsure whether he’ll be able to sign Matt Jarvis
Sam Allardyce admits West Ham’s move for Matt Jarvis is “stuck” as they have yet to agree a deal with Wolves.
The Hammers have been one of the most active clubs in the transfer market since securing promotion back to the Premier League via the play-offs.
The likes of Alou Diarra, Modibo Maiga and Mohamed Diame have arrived this summer but Allardyce wants more, including Wolves winger Jarvis.
West Ham have yet to agree a fee for the England international, with reports suggesting the asking price is £10million.
“It is stuck - that’s the answer,” Allardyce said, speaking ahead of the season opener against Aston Villa.
“I don’t know how that will pan out now. I think that we’ll just have to wait and see.
“For me, it is on the backburner because Saturday is the most important thing for me and then if it is to be done after Saturday we’ll see where we are.
“We have got to try to agree something with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
“That is the issue we have at the moment, before we get into what the player wants or doesn’t want.”
