Newcastle boss Sam Allardyce has dismissed reports that he is ready to ditch Nigerian striker Obafemi Martins in order to raise funds for future signings.

Martins, who scored 17 times in his first season at St James´ Park, was said to be a possible sacrifice as Allardyce looks to inject new blood into his squad.

However, Allardyce told Newcastle´s official website, "The story is complete and utter fabrication. There is nothing in it whatsoever."
