Black Cats boss in the market for a new midfielder.
Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio says he expects to keep looking for new players until the end of the summer transfer window, according to the Daily Mail.
The Italian, who had a successful playing career in the Premier League for West Ham, Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton, is set to start his first full season as a manager in the top flight, and is determined to steer Sunderland away from the relegation zone.
Having joined late last season, he managed to ensure they survived relegation to the Championship, and he has already brought in ten new faces to improve his side’s fortunes this year.
However, he still feels he could strengthen further, and has singled out a creative midfield playmaker as a particular target, as he is not entirely convinced of Craig Gardener or Jack Colback in that role.
“We are searching for a real playmaker,” he said. “Jack Colback can play in the middle but in a different way. One day he can be adapted. Even Craig Gardner can play there, but again in a different way.
