WEST Ham United boss Sam Allardyce admits there has been no progress in their pursuit of Blackburn Rovers’ defender Martin Olsson.

Allardyce said no “official bid” has yet been submitted for the Swedish international but the Lancashire Telegraph understands an offer in the region of £4million has already been rejected.

Rovers are determined to keep Olsson at Ewood Park, with the club holding out for a fee believed to be nearer £7million.
