Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce admits there's no cut-off point for Manchester City to sign Roque Santa Cruz.

"There's never a cut-off point in a volatile transfer window," he said. "At Bolton, we sold Michael Ricketts at 11.58pm and brought in Pierre-Yves Andre and Florent Laville a minute later.

"We waited for one to go out before the other one came in. You can never say never, but there might be a case where you can't find me!"
