West Ham boss Sam Allardyce confirms that the club has held initial talks with Rangers over the signing of Nikica Jelavic.

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce has confirmed that the club have held initial talks with Rangers over a possible move for striker Nikica Jelavic.

The Hammers recently failed in a bid to capture Huddersfield Town forward Jordan Rhodes.

"We have enquired in terms of his availability as far as I am concerned, but in terms of a bid that's not my department," said Allardyce.

Jelavic, who has scored 14 goals this season for Rangers, moved to Ibrox from Rapid Vienna in summer 2010 for £4m.
