Sunderland striker Ignacio Scocco has completed his move back to former club Newell's Old Boys.

The 29-year-old, known as "Nacho", has returned to Argentina following a short, but disappointing spell on Wearside.

Scocco joined the club from Brazilian outfit Internacional for £3.2million in January, and is understood to have left for slightly less after failing to score in his eight appearances for the Black Cats.

O'M fallout with council

Marseille will not play their opening home game of the Ligue 1 season at the Stade Velodrome after a fallout with the local authorities.

OM have failed to reach an agreement with officials in Marseille over rent on the stadium and the opening home fixture against Montpellier on August 17 will now be played at the Stade de la Mosson.

West Ham looking for striker

West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan has confirmed the club are in the hunt for at least one new striker having lost Andy Carroll to injury.

We have to bring in another striker and we're working on it now to buy one, or loan one, or both.

You can never have enough strikers and really with Andy gone we haven't got enough. It was desperate last year... We probably made a mistake by putting all our eggs in one basket.

We can't start the season with the strikeforce we've got. I don't think it's good enough, there's not enough height in it and if we get another injury, in terms of quantity, it's insufficient, so we have to sign at least one more player.
