Emanuel Pogatetz: No permanent deal at West Ham

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed the club will not be extending on-loan defender Emanuel Pogatetz's stay at the club.

Austria international Pogatetz joined from German side Wolfsburg during January's transfer window on a loan deal until the end of the season.

Pogatetz has made only a handful of appearances with the Hammers though, mainly as a substitute, and Allardyce has decided he will not be looking to retain the 30-year-old.

Allardyce said ahead of West Ham's final Barclays Premier League match at home to Reading on Sunday, according to the London club's Twitter account:

"We've already said to Pogatetz thanks very much, he's been a fantastic professional but it won't be extended, and we'll decide on the others after the game."

haos reached its ultimate reckoning last weekend with Tony Hibbert looking assured at left back and Osman looking like a cultured ball playing midfielder before busting a gut to get to the back post for a Samuel Eto'o ball. Different chaos but chaos. If Kone scores the winner tonight I fear the world will end.
