West Brom midfielder Graham Dorrans will not be heading to the Boleyn Ground after Irons boss Sam Allardyce rejected reports he is preparing a bid.
Speaking after last night's 2-1 friendly win over Colchester, Allardyce said: "We have no interest in Graham Dorrans."
"He is a midfield player and you saw how many midfielders we had out there tonight."
The Hammers lost a versatile midfielder in May after Gary O'Neil opted to reject a new deal at Upton Park but with the emergence of youngster Ravel Morrison and a rapidly healing relationship between Allardyce and Alou Diarra after a bust-up between the pair last season which saw the Frenchman move on loan to Rennes in January, the club seemingly have no need to strengthen their midfield ranks.
