West Ham striker Diafra Sakho close to Sunderland switch

With Steven Fletcher and Danny Graham poised to leave the Stadium of Light and Dame N’Doye returning to parent club Trabzonspor, Allardyce is looking to bring in two forwards.

Player of the year Jermain Defoe, whose goals played such a key role in the Black Cats avoiding relegation, remains his No.1 forward.

But Allardyce does not want to rely as heavily on the 33-year-old as much next season and sees Sakho as someone who can share the load.
