Blackburn boss Allardyce wants replacement signed before McCarthy sale

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce says he would want a replacement lined up if he is to sell Benni McCarthy.

The South Africa international is expected to join Portsmouth in January.

And Allardyce said: "There is a price to be met if someone wants to buy Benni McCarthy.

"If the club is happy with that price we will go to Benni and say we've accepted a deal from a certain club. Now it's up to you to see if you can sort your side of it out.

"But we would have to have a replacement for him to allow it develop in to him being transferred."
