​West Ham united are in disarray at present having failed to win in seven, losing their last five. Their awful form has led to a bold decision from the board, who have decided to cancel all contract talks until Premier League survival is achieved, according to ​The Sun.

The Hammers face Swansea City on Saturday in a game where if they lose they will be just two points above the drop-zone with the worst form in the league.


There has been talk of Slaven Bilic being sacked at the end of the season, as well as talk of new contracts for star players like Diafra Sakho and Michail Antonio.

West Ham CEO Karren Brady admitted to feelings of anxiety when looking at her side's recent run of form, but she feels confident Bilic can guide the Hammers to safety.

“I would be lying if I denied there is growing anxiety." ​the Sun quote her as saying. “We fully support Slaven and expect him to turn things around.

“But it’s at moments like this we have to understand football, totally, is a results business.”

An inside source told the Sun that contract talks with Diafra Sakho, Michail Antonio and Bilic himself will be halted until the end of the current campaign.

"There is no point talking about new contracts at the moment." they said. “The club will not do anything until safety for next season is guaranteed.”
