Sam Allardyce to Leave As West Ham Boss

Sam Allardyce has revealed he planned to leave West Ham United even if the club had offered to renew his contract.
Allardyce's departure was announced within minutes of the end of West Ham's 2-0 loss at Newcastle United that saw The Magpies stay in the Premier League.
The Hammers decided not to renew the 60-year-old's deal that expired at the end of this season.
Allardyce said: "I didn't want to stay. I suppose you could say it was mutual if they didn't want me to stay either."
