Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce may not be finished in the transfer market this month, despite the imminent signing of Dame N’Doye.

The Black Cats boss has already captured Bayern Munich defender Jan Kirchhoff and will tie up a loan move for Senegal striker N’Doye in the next 24 hours.

But Allardyce insists he is still in the market for further additions, if he can get players off the wage bill.

Full story here.

One player who has sensationally been linked with Sunderland again is Lamine Kone.

According to French newspaper L’Équipe, Sunderland have re-entered negotiations with Lorient for the transfer of Kone, a player who was due to join them at the beginning of the transfer window only for the Black Cats to call the move off.

Whether the Black Cats would return for the defender, having signed Kirchhoff since the Kone deal collapsed, is debateable, but Allardyce would like someone who can play full-back before the end of the window.

Meanwhile, reports today have claimed Leeds United are keen on a loan move for Sunderland midfielder Seb Larsson.
