On the pre-January rumour front we have:

Nicola Zigic – 6`7″ Crouch-a-like struggling at Valencia who would make the ideal target man for Allardyce to bring in his 4-5-1 system.

Benni McCarthy – Linked as part of a potential swap deal with the Duke.

Gilberto Silva – £6m mooted which seems out of our spending depth.

Lassana Diarra – Could be a potential loan from Arsenal.
