O'Neill to Replace Grant
Both Sky Sports and the BBC are reporting that Martin O'Neill will replace Avram Grant as manager of West Ham after Saturday's Premier League match against Arsenal. However The Guardian say that they have contacted West Ham and that a 'senior board member' told them,
"I can categorically say that it is not correct. I do not know where that has come from."
It had been reported this week that Martin O'Neill was not convinced that West Ham could avoid relegation this season and was therefore less than keen to become manager. If rumours of O'Neill's appointment are true then it may mean that the board have promised him money to spend in the current transfer window.
Considering West Ham's current position the recruitment of O'Neill would be a huge accomplishment by the board.
