Transfer news: West Ham boss Sam Allardyce says there has been no progress on a deal for Blackburn Rovers defender Martin Olsson.

The Hammers reportedly had an opening bid of £2million knocked back, but Allardyce insists he has yet to table an official offer for the Sweden international, who he worked with during his time at Ewood Park.

Although Allardyce has made clear his desire to bring in defensive reinforcements in January, he says the Hammers are not close to landing Olsson, who is reportedly valued at £7m by the Championship side.

“We are where we were a few days ago,” he said.

“We haven’t had any direct contact with Blackburn or made a formal offer yet.”
