ALLARDYCE ON N'DOYE

Could a Sam Allardyce signing be any more of a Sam Allardyce signing than Dame N'Doye?

No, no it could not.

Big Sam tells the club's official website: "Dame will bring something different to our forward options. Having already played in the Premier League he should have no problems in hitting the ground running too, which is very important at this stage of the season."

CEREZO EXCLUSIVE

Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has told Goal that the transfer ban is "complicated, difficult and unfair" but says it will not prevent the club from challenging for titles.

He added: "The truth is that for us it has been a surprise. We are convinced that we have to appeal the sanction and we will do it for sure. I don't know if we can sign in the summer, because I do not know how the rules are, but there will be an appeal so let’s see."

ADEBAYOR TO CHELSEA, ANYBODY?

Emmanuel Adebayor is STILL without a club having left Tottenham in the summer, with a host of Premier League sides rumoured to be interested in his services.

And Harry Redknapp, writing in his Evening Standard column, feels Chelsea could do with him.

He wrote: "When you look around at what is available in the market this month, Adebayor on a free transfer until the end of the season is a no-brainer.

"Chelsea have been linked with him and if he went to a club like that, he’d know he wouldn’t necessarily play every week but on a short-term basis."

BLACK CATS TO LAND STRIKER?

Sunderland will announce the loan signing of striker Dame N’Doye from Trabzonspor today, according to Sky Sports.

The 30-year-old may be a familiar face to some, having left Hull City for Turkey following the Tigers' relegation from the Premier League in May.

He has just one goal for his new club this season - is he what Sam Allardyce's relegation threatened side need?
