West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce expects wanted centre-back Winston Reid to leave the club.

The New Zealand defender has been impressive for the much-improved Hammers this season and has been linked with a move to Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United, with all three clubs struggling defensively.

The 26-year-old's contract is set to expire in June and while the two parties have been in negotiation, Allardyce does not expect him to be at Upton Park beyond June - although he revealed that no approach had been made so far during this window.

"It's highly unlikely Winston is going to sign for us based on what people have said to me," said Allardyce. "There is no future for Winston Reid at West Ham at the moment as his contract finishes on 30 June. He hasn't said he is or isn't going to sign.

"You would err on the back that he isn't, by the feel and look of it, at this moment in time."

Reid arrived at West Ham from Danish side FC Midtyjlland after impressive performances at the 2010 World Cup and has become a crucial part of Allardyce's squad
