Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce is ready to attack the January market following the club's completed sale to Venky's.

The Daily Mail says Allardyce has urged the owners to splash out on new players immediately and believes their ambitions will be greatly advanced if he is allowed to bring in a marquee name.

He has already lined up moves for Standard Liege striker Mohammed Tchite, Paris Saint-Germain full back Tripy Makonda and a loan offer for Manchester City's Shaun Wright-Phillips.

The new owners have said just £5m will be available in January but insiders insist the eventual funds for Allardyce will not be so low.
