Avram Grant has blasted the club insiders he believes are trying to destabilise West Ham.

The Hammers manager insists he has the backing of the club's co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan and that all three are busy working on strengthening the squad during the transfer window.

But Grant was clearly unimpressed that director Karren Brady revealed in her newspaper column why the club had pulled the plug on signing Steve Sidwell.

"I didn't read the column so I don't know what she said. Maybe I will have a column in a newspaper and say what I think," said Grant.

"All the things I have to say to the people at the club I say to them directly.

"We (Grant and Brady) don't have a problem but I speak with the owners. I'm dealing with the owners and that is the most important."

Grant continued: "When the rumours are coming from inside the club it doesn't create much stability.

"Of course I know where the rumours come from and I know there's people trying to hurt the club but if I put my energy on this it's no good.

"Sometimes there's situations you don't like you just have to deal with.

"I want to put my energy on the team and the players. I can solve it but not now."
