Black Cats eye up United star !

Sunderland are looking to sign West Ham striker Bobby Zamora in the January transfer window according to reports in the Daily Star today.

Zamora has struggled to get his place in The Hammers' starting eleven this season, with the presence of fellow strikers Dean Ashton, Craig Bellamy and Carlton Cole.

It has been rumoured that the Englishman is quite unhappy with his amount of game time at the club and it is thought that the London club are looking to cash in on the out of favour forward.

Sunderland are thought to be looking to sign a striker to accompany Premier League new boy, Kenwyne Jones in the Black Cats' attack, and with Bobby Zamora's experience in the top flight he may just be the right man for the job.

It is thought that the Roy Keane's side will have to pay up to £2.5 million for the former Tottenham man.
