The Sunderland fans in The Transfer Tavern are having a quiet drink and discussing comments made by their manager with regards to transfer plans for the rest of the window.
The Chronicle is reporting that Sam Allardyce is looking to add a new goalkeeper and two outfield players to their struggling squad.
Having already added Jan Kirchoff and Dame N’Doye to his squad Allardyce is keen for more additions as he looks to guide the side to survival in the Premier League come the end of the season.
However whilst making comments about his plans for the rest of the window the Sunderland boss remained coy on interest in Swansea forward Andre Ayew. Speaking about his plans Allardyce said
“I’m looking at several players. It’s very difficult to acquire any players in January, particularly when the club is in this position because they have to be able to come and join the fight, and want to come and join the fight.”
“Some players turn around and say they don’t want to take the risk, I’d like to come to Sunderland but ring me next summer if you’re safe. Then we have to say OK, and move on.”
“If there are no more at the end of the window, that will be because there is no-one who I feel has enough quality and then we’ll have to go with what we’ve got.”
The Sunderland fans in The Transfer Tavern are eager to see who Allardyce can bring into the club, and hope they have the fighting spirit to help the club maintain their Premier League status.
