Ricardo Vaz Te: Sam Allardyce says there has been no Cardiff bid

The 26-year-old joined the Hammers in January last year, helping them to a top-flight return by scoring the decisive goal in a 2-1 play-off final win over Blackpool.

Vaz Te has been linked with an Upton Park exit this summer, but Allardyce denied that the newly-promoted Welsh side have been in touch regarding a move.

He said: "There's no official bid from Cardiff for Ricardo Vaz Te. It always happens at this time of year - it's just agents getting busy."

The Hammers broke their transfer record earlier this summer, spending £15million on Andy Carroll, but when asked whether there would be any further arrivals, Allardyce was quick to dismiss the idea.

"Not unless the chairman has found some money he hasn't told me about," he said.

"I've got no more money left, so the squad I've got is the squad I've got."
