According to the Sunday Sun ... Alan Pardew is back in for Chelsea's Dan Sturridge after Mevlut Erdinc's snub forced them into a major transfer rethink. Sunday Sun: "A move for Sturridge had been written off after the club were quoted £20m but developments on the Erdinc front over the past fortnight have prompted a redrawing of their hit-list. "Although there is some money in the kitty for a striker Mike Ashley has told boss Alan Pardew that he must sell to fund further purchases. "That has limited their ability to land one of three Continental targets being considered and the club now believe a season-long loan move with an option to buy built in might represent a more cash conscious solution to their striker search. "That means Sturridge, a player Pardew has consistently pushed for, is back on the agenda in a development that will delight Toon supporters." DELIGHT TOON SUPPORTERS? We sell the biggest striker prospect in British football for £35m and we replace him with a LOAN signing. Yep, that guy at the Sunday Sun certainly has his finger on the pulse.
