Emanuel Pogatetz: No permanent deal at W

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."
