Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio has confirmed that he will reinvest the money they club has received from the sale of goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, Sky Sports reports.

The 25-year-old stopper finally completed his move to Liverpool this week for a fee believed to be in the region of £9 million and the Fiery Italian has moved to ease the fans fears after they expressed concern at letting last season’s Player of the Year leave.

The former West Ham striker is planning a summer overhaul of the squad he inherited from Martin O’Neill last season and has promised that the fee he received for Mignolet will go straight back into the team.

“Our aim is to build a competitive squad for the new season and this [Mignolet] deal will give us further ability to strengthen the side,” Di Canio is quoted as saying in The Guardian.

“I would like to assure our fans that there is a huge amount of work going on behind the scenes.”

The Black Cats have already been linked with moves for Le Havre full-back Benjamin Mendy, Inter Milan midfielder Alfred Duncan and Heerenveen goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt with more surely to come over the coming weeks.
