Capello linked with Allardyce's Newcastle job

Fabio Capello is being linked with Sam Allardyce's job at Newcastle United.

The Toon board are putting in a contingency plan in case the club's dismal form continues and they are forced to give Allardyce the axe.

Club owner Mike Ashley is believed to be prepared to give the Newcastle boss until Christmas to turn things around.

But with the January transfer window looming, reports in the Daily Star suggest Newcastle have targeted the Italian boss - who last year won the Spanish League with Real Madrid - as a potential successor.
