Newcastle boss Allardyce: Transfer plans different level to Bolton

Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce admits he's adjusted his sights in the transfer market from his days at Bolton.

"I don't think there are any more names being thrown at us because when I was at Bolton we always needed to secure five players or more a season," said Allardyce, who is still tracking Paris-Saint Germain's Czech international centre-back David Rozenhal, despite the fact Borussia Dortmund would appear to be the favourites to land him.

"But we scouted the players at Bolton we could afford, some of the players we are looking at for Newcastle simply weren't in their price range. We had a vast scouting network at Bolton which we put to good use, but the size of the player we're going for at Newcastle is much bigger. They have a very good record already."
