Cape Town - West Ham United vice-chairman Karren Brady has dismissed reports claiming that Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has been approached by the London club.
The German tactician, who recently confirmed his intention to part ways with his current employers at the end of the campaign, has been linked with a whole host of clubs in the Premier League.
The Hammers, in particular, were said to be lining up a move for Klopp after losing faith in Sam Allardyce.
However, Brady insists there is no truth to the rumours, saying the club's board are quite happy with the progress made under the English manager this term.
"It is just nonsense," Brady told Sky Sports when asked about the Klopp rumours.
"Sam is the manager, we have talked to him about sitting down at the end of the season, which we will do.
"We have to see what he wants to do going forwards. That's how these things work.
"What sort of money does he want to invest in players? What positions does he want? Those are the conversation you always have, typically, at the end of the season and we make an arrangement going forwards. That's still our intention.
"I think we have, as a board, always made it clear that we sit down with Sam at the end of every season. We've done that since he has joined us and we've done that when his contract has run out before.
"So nothing has changed in that respect. I think our performances - there has been one or two recent ones that haven't been great - overall have definitely improved.
"The team have done very well, we haven't been able to get the results we wanted but the performances have been good.
"Sam has had a good season, we've had a few recent disappointing results - he would be more disappointed than anyone. But, overall, the relationship with Sam is good. He has done what we have asked of him."
