Jones and West Ham deny managerial rumour
WEST Ham co-owner David Gold has insisted the club have not approached Cardiff manager Dave Jones about the managerial vacancy at Upton Park.
The Irons sacked Avram Grant after they were relegated from the Barclays Premier League.
Reports had suggested they would now move for Jones after the Bluebirds lost in the npower Championship play-offs.
However, Gold said on Twitter: “Despite what you may have read in the papers, we have not spoken to Dave Jones.”
The 54-year-old former Wolves boss also appeared to rule himself out of the running saying: “I have not had any contact with them over the job.

“I am not prepared to say anything about the vacancy.
“I am still employed by Cardiff City and only thinking of them. I will be sitting down with the board at Cardiff and discussing my future with them soon.”
