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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
