SAM ALLARDYCE has opened the door to a shock Premier League return.

That’s by telling one relegation-battling side to “call me.”

Big Sam, 68, is a top flight legend after guiding several teams to safety.

The former England boss has taken charge at the likes of Newcastle, West Ham and Everton.

But Allardyce has not been in the dugout for 18 months after being sacked by West Brom in June 2021.

Despite that, the veteran has been linked with numerous vacancies this season.

And there are currently two Premier League sides without a manager after some dodgy results.

Leeds parted ways with Jesse Marsch after moving to within a point of the drop zone.

And bottom-place Southampton are also leaderless after sacking Nathan Jones this morning.

Both clubs could be interested in a dogged relegation battler like Allardyce.


But Big Sam admits it’s Leeds who take his fancy.

He believes they have all the characteristics required to stay up.

And Allardyce is more than ready to sign up should they come knocking.

That’s despite reports tipping ex-Ajax boss Alfred Schreuder for the hot seat.

Allardyce told the No Tippy Tappy Football podcast he “wouldn’t see any problem” saving Leeds.

He added: “I’d have thought by now if they were interested in me, they know where I am, so call me.

“If someone called me I wouldn’t turn down going chatting about it, certainly not at Leeds United.

“But there has been no call, so before anyone starts any speculation, nobody from Elland Road has called me about the job in hand.

“I watched them against Man United and I wouldn’t see any problem sorting them out, from my point of view with my experience.”
