Steve McClaren has not held talks with West Ham United, sources close to the former England manager have confirmed to skysports.com.

The former England coach has been made favourite for the Upton Park job following a wave of speculation on Monday about Avram Grant's successor - after he was sacked on Sunday following their relegation from the Premier League.

McClaren was one of the early front-runners, before being made bookmakers' favourite after speculation increased about him taking the job.

However, sources close to the former England and Middlesbrough manager have told skysports.com that there has been 'no contact whatsoever'.

The sources confirmed: "There is no truth in Steve talking with West Ham at all.

"All this has caught him totally by surprise, and there has been no contact whatsoever.

"He does not know where these reports have come from and he can categorically deny having any contact with anyone at West Ham or anyone connected with West Ham."
