West Ham boss Allardyce has short-list of 25 players

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has targeted 25 players in the January transfer window to assist his injury-hit Championship squad. The former Blackburn Rovers boss is currently without eight first-team players, while Jack Collison and Joey O'Brien are suspended.

"There are about 25 names on my pad already at the minute," Allardyce told BBC London 94.9.

"It is important to sift through the information we have and try to make the right choices as quickly as we can."

The 57-year-old added: "Hopefully we will deliver a player into the squad as quickly as possible in January."
