Bruce ready for big clearout at Sunderland

New Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is set to overhaul his squad in the coming weeks.

The Journal says Ipswich boss Roy Keane has been credited with an interest in Paul McShane, Daryl Murphy and Carlos Edwards - and all three players are unlikely to have a future at the Stadium of Light under Bruce. Anthony Stokes is another who has been made available, with Ipswich also linked with a striker who has failed to fulfil his potential at Sunderland.

Greg Halford is up for sale but, having used up the last of their Premier League parachute payments, Sheffield United may find it difficult to raise the money required to take the defender who spent last season on loan with them to Bramall Lane permanently.

Meanwhile, Roy O'Donovan appears unlikely to join Hartlepool after Chris Turner distanced himself from a move for the Irish striker.
