Black Cats boss unsure over sales of players.
Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio has said that he is unsure as to whether he should let players leave the club this summer as reports have hinted that David Vaughan could be on his way out, Sky Sports reports.
Championship promotion chasers Reading have reportedly put an offer in for the Welsh international, whilst Premier League new boys Hull City and Crystal Palace have also been linked with moves.
A move could appeal to Vaughan as he will face increased competition for a starting role at the Stadium of Light following the manager’s heavy recruitment drive over the summer.
However, Di Canio isn’t thought to be keen on letting any other players leave as his recruitment policy has seen the club get to where he feels they need to be in terms of numbers, and for that reason alone he is hoping to keep everyone else in place until the transfer window slams shut on September 2nd.
“I don’t expect many players to leave before the transfer deadline,” he said.
“A lot of players leaving is simply not part of the plan – we do not have a big squad. I’ll look to make the most of every player.”
