West Ham United boss David Moyes has responded when asked by reporters if Michail Antonio could be sold in January.
The 32-year-old is an alleged transfer target for Wolves this month according to a report from talkSPORT.
And it has been claimed that Antonio would be open to a new challenge, having spent nearly eight years with West Ham.

Antonio has really struggled to emulate the form that saw him become such a force in the 2020/21 season.
The 32-year-old seems to have lost his blistering pace, and is now playing a bit-part role for West Ham. Antonio needs to knuckle down and remember just how far hard work has got him throughout his career to date.
But could he leave the London Stadium?
Michail Antonio could be sold in January; Moyes responds
The Hammers boss has been speaking to reporters this afternoon ahead of tomorrow’s huge Premier League clash with Wolves.
And Moyes responded when asked whether there is any truth to the rumours that Antonio could be sold to Wolves, as quoted by Football.London:
I don’t where that’s got legs from. He’s got a couple years on his contract so he will be staying for a while.
As much as I believe that Antonio is a spent force, selling him to our relegation rivals Wolves in the January transfer window would be an utterly crazy decision.
Moving him on would leave us with one striker again – something we had to get by with for 18 months before Gianluca Scamacca arrived at the London Stadium.
It does seem like Antonio has not responded well at all to competition from the Italian. And that has to change if he is to have any kind of long-term future with West Ham.
Reports have claimed that Michail Antonio could be sold in January. Moyes has made it very clear that that won’t be happening though.
