Nolan set to link up with Allardyce yet again

Former West Ham United captain Kevin Nolan is in line for a reunion with Sam Allardyce at Sunderland, according to the Mail Online.

The midfielder has been without a club since leaving the Hammers by mutual consent back in August but looks likely to pen a deal with the Black Cats, who last week appointed Allardyce as their new manager.

The sixty year old took charge at the Stadium of Light on Monday, replacing Dick Advocat who left the club earlier this month.

Nolan, 33, has captained Bolton Wanderers, Newcastle United and West Ham under Allardyce and those leadership qualities would come in handy at a side who are yet to win in the league this season.

They are currently above only Newcastle by virtue of goal difference, though could close the gap on seventeenth place West Bromwich Albion by beating the Baggies when they meet on Saturday afternoon.
