Former England boss Steve McClaren has announced he does not want to be considered for the vacant manager's job at West Ham.

The club's co-owners, David Gold and David Sullivan, sacked Avram Grant after Premier League relegation was confirmed following Sunday's defeat to Wigan.

McClaren, who was dismissed by Wolfsburg earlier in the season, was soon strongly linked with the role but insists he has no plans to take the Upton Park hotseat.

He said in a statement to Sky Sports News: "It is very flattering to be linked with a club of West Ham's size and historic stature, also one that has tremendous fans.

"However, at this moment in time I do not wish to be considered for the position. But I wish everybody at West Ham all the very best for the future."

Former Newcastle manager Chris Hughton, ex-West Ham players Slaven Bilic and Paulo di Canio, and Sam Allardyce, who was sacked by Blackburn in December, have also been linked with the job.
