Sam Allardyce keen on Jermain Defoe but needs Crystal Palace safety first

David Moyes says he's been given the backing of his Chairman and he expects to be the Sunderland Manager next season, despite the club's relegation to the championship.

Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce is keen on signing Sunderland's 34-year-old striker Jermain Defoe at the end of the season, but must wait until his own team's Premier League future is secure before a reunion becomes possible.

Pienaar said: "This is my first one [relegation] and it is the hardest thing to take in my career".

"I know what needs to be done to get back in the Premier League", he said. And I don't want to waste people's money by spending a lot of money on just a back-up.

However, Moyes told his prematch news conference ahead of the trip to Hull City, who are still battling relegation, that talks with Sunderland CEO Martin Bain and chairman Ellis Short had reached a positive outcome.




Sakho is in France undergoing rehabilitation for his knee injury and Allardyce could not confirm if the Frenchman would recover in time to play any further part in Palace's fight for survival. Ellis and the board want me to stay. "I think if you talked about the club and not about David Moyes then right from the start we did say there is a rebuilding job to be done".

England global Defoe is in demand after Sunderland's relegation, with a clause existing in his contract that will reportedly allow him to leave for free now that his side are dropping to the second tier. I told them exactly.

"We can only lose the ones who are out of contract". When we are safe, someone else who is already safe may already have done it.

THE LIKES OF Manchester United and Arsenal have been warned that Sunderland will be "expensive sellers" this summer as interest mounts in key players such as Jordan Pickford.

Sunderland fans... What do you make of this announcement?
