One gossip column has Sam Allardyce preparing to make an offer, to Southampton, for Rickie Lambert.

It`s reporting how Big Sam is a long-time admirer of the forward and is looking to test the water with a January move for the striker who has scored at every level of English football.

But, before we all get carried away, the same news source infers that Southampton will not let their striker leave until the summer.

So I guess this is another sit back and wait and see kind of rumour!
