Michael Laudrup is out of the running for the vacant manager's job at West Ham after agreeing to take over at Spartak Moscow.

The Danish legend was believed to be on West Ham's shortlist as they seek a replacement for Alan Curbishley.
 
Curbishley resigned from his post at Upton Park last week, citing the club's transfer policy as the reason for his departure.
 
Laudrup has been out of work since leaving Getafe last May and he has been linked with a number of top jobs.
 
Laudrup was expected to arrive in England to have an interview with the Hammers on Monday, but instead he travelled to Russia for talks with Spartak.
Specialist
 
Spartak have been searching for a new coach for since sacking Stanislav Cherchesov in early August and they believe Laudrup is the ideal replacement.
 
Spartak general manager Valeri Karpin has confirmed they have agreed an 18-month deal with the 44-year-old.
 
"His contract term will be one-and-a-half years," Karpin told uefa.com.
 
"We've chosen this specialist as we think that he is capable of setting out the team's style and achieving good results."
