Sam Allardyce, desperate to sign a striker, still has ambitions of landing Southampton`s England international striker, Rickie Lambert.

A fee of £8 million appears to be the price required to acquire the thirty-one year old but the deal has, so we`re told, been put on hold.

Whilst Lambert, who is struggling to get a regular start for the south-coast club at the moment; is keen to come it appears that Southampton won`t entertain a deal unless they can secure the services of a replacement.

We`ll endeavour to keep you abreast of any information we can muster.
