Sam Allardyce eyes January signings
New Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce is expected to go on a January spending spree in the quest to improve the club's performances.
The 60-year-old was named the Black Cats manager during the international break after Dick Advocaat resigned from the role.
According to The Mirror, Allardyce has set his sights on at least four signings in the New Year as he seeks to bring a new revolution at Wearside.
It is added that Queens Park Rangers' Sandro, free-agent Carlton Cole, and West Ham defensive duo Joey O'Brien and James Collins are among the top names in Big Sam's wishlist.
Allardyce made a losing start to his reign at Sunderland as his side slumped to a 1-0 defeat away to West Bromwich Albion.
