Sunderland chairman admits to players leaving in January

Niall Quinn says more players will leave in January than arrive, but those arrivals will be quality signings. Quinn told Sky Sports News: "I think it is no secret that we are top heavy with players here.

"There is no sort of big owners throwing big demands on me - I run the club and they allow me to do it in my own way - but we are top heavy for nothing more than say sporting reasons," he said, adding too many players are perhaps trying to get in the team which can cause a problem or two.

"So I understand that and we will try and help out every player as best we can.

"So basically what I am saying to you is that there will probably be more outs than ins but if there is a touch of quality to be had somewhere and we think it's really good for the club then we are in a position to do that too and Roy and myself and the powers that be will look into that as the time comes."
