Zigic and other rumours
On the pre-January rumour front we have:
Nicola Zigic - 6`7" Crouch-a-like struggling at Valencia who would make the ideal target man for Allardyce to bring in his 4-5-1 system.
Benni McCarthy - Linked as part of a potential swap deal with the Duke.
Gilberto Silva - £6m mooted which seems out of our spending depth.
Lassana Diarra - Could be a potential loan from Arsenal.
