DEAN HOLDSWORTH could be the man to answer Wimbledon boss Egil Olsen`s striker SOS.

The forward, a former member of the crazy gang, was viewed by the Dons as he starred in Bolton`s 1-0 away victory at Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

The 30-year-old is one of the top earners at the Reebok Stadium, and new boss Sam Allardyce is keen to offload Holdsworth in a bid to reduce the club`s wage bill.

Allardyce said "Dean was excellent against QPR, but his family position is very difficult for him as they have moved south. I know Dean would like to go back to London as well. If the right offer comes in for him, then he`ll go."

Holdsworth was linked with a move to West Ham last week before Trevor Sinclair and Paulo Wanchope both unexpectedly returned from injury.

It is common knowledge that Dons` boss Olsen is desperate for a striker with John Hartson a long term absentee and Marcus Gayle on international duty with Jamaica.

Accordingly a short-term move for Holdsworth may suit all concerned parties.
