Alan Pardew picked up his first win as West Brom manager last weekend, helping the club with its first game since August 19. Without an away victory since August, the Baggies have lost seven and drawn three of their last 10 away games.
"We can't find one", Allardyce admitted when asked whether Everton supporters could expect a new left-back before 1 February.
Despite back-to-back wins for the Baggies in all competitions, they remain inside the relegation zone.
"The number of goals he has scored is exceptionally good for a player from a wide position". He's an experienced player who scores goals and wants to go to the World Cup.
Tom Petty Died From Massive Accidental Drug OD
We continue to mourn with you and marvel at Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' incredible positive impact on music and the world. His family said they suspected he died of an accidental overdose and the coroner's report confirmed their beliefs.
Despite Everton's lengthy injury list being reduced, Allardyce still has a reduced choice in defence with Leighton Baines (calf) Michael Keane (foot) Funes Mori (knee) and Seamus Coleman (leg) all still unavailable.
On whether Everton must sell before they can buy, Allardyce added: "Difficult to say where wage bill lies without speaking to finance director". I wonder whether they're enjoying their football as much and that's something that would potentially come down to their relationship with the manager. Coupled with the return of Yannick Bolasie, the Toffees now have natural wide-men who can play on either side of the pitch.
Burnley have agreed a deal with Everton for Aaron Lennon after the attacker was made surplus to requirements at Goodison Park following the £20m ($27.72m) signing of Arsenal's Theo Walcott earlier this week.
Allardyce started his coaching career in 1991 as player-manager at Limerick, guiding them to promotion to the top tier of the League of Ireland, but those games did not qualify as they are not regarded as a full-time professional club.
Allardyce has not yet finished his transfer business in this window, but admits he will have to cut the wage bill if he is to sign the left-back he needs. While he has slowly regained his previous performance levels with each passing month, Evans once again will need to maintain his focus on the pitch as his immediate future remains in doubt.
