Allardyce wants defender before City clash

Allardyce wants defender before City clash

'We might need somebody against Coventry - as quickly as that.'

Sam Allardyce made it clear in his pre-match press conference ahead of West Ham United's trip to the Ricoh Arena that he is still concerned about his lack of cover in the centre of defence.

Quoted on the official Hammers website he talked about having only Abdoulaye Faye and James Tomkins as recognised centre-halves and his search for a new signing in that area.

Having failed in a loan move for Arsenal's Sebastien Squillaci, Allardyce is weighing up a deal for trialist Francisco Pavon.
