Blackburn boss Allardyce wants transfer deals done early

Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce wants new faces at Ewood Park 'as early as possible'.

"I'm expecting somebody as early as possible," Allardyce told the club's official website.

"Certainly my focus over the last few days has been speaking to the chairman and saying that if I can find a player, which I'm focusing on doing, I will let you know as soon as possible and hopefully we can do something.

"We both talked about that for a long time, and we are both going to go out there and try and see if we can improve the squad as quickly as possible and that will be very good if we can.

"January is a difficult window to work in, generally the inflation that comes in a small window like this is in many cases bordering on diabolical, but if you don't pay the money you don't get the player and that is why lots and lots of money changes hands at this particular period."
