Allardyce Set to Raid Newcastle Again

Newcastle United boss Sam Allardyce is ready to raid his old club for Nile Ranger.Allardyce is considering taking the striker to relegated West Ham United.Blackpool had a bid accepted for Ranger, but the 20-year-old failed to agree personal terms.Ranger – who has been told he can leave St James’s Park – was back training with his Newcastle team-mates yesterday after his proposed move to Bloomfield Road broke down.
 Allardyce is keen on Ranger, who showed a lot of promise when he broke into United’s first team during the club’s Championship-winning campaign the season before last.However, Ranger found his opportunities limited in the Premier League under Pardew and his predecessor Chris Hughton.And regular first-team football at Upton Park, and a return to his native London, would be an attractive proposition for Ranger, who scored one goal for the club last season.

It would also see Ranger reunited with his former captain Kevin Nolan, signed by Allardyce from Newcastle earlier this season.
