West Ham boss Allardyce still keen on Southampton striker Lambert

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has hinted he remains interested in Southampton striker Ricki Lambert.

The two sides meet at Upton Park this afternoon with Allardyce admitting he wanted to sign the 32-year-old during the January transfer window.

"He's a master of his position at the minute," said Allardyce. "It's all sorts of goals he scores. You saw his free-kick which he bent in a couple of weeks ago (against Stoke), he didn't get the accolades for that - it was world class.

"He's also got his through balls and finding of space and, if I had to liken him to anyone, it would be Teddy Sheringham."
