Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio has explained how incoming football chief Roberto de Fanti will help him build his squad.

De Fanti's appointment is still to be confirmed.

But Di Canio revealed: "I have said to them we need this type of player, this type of quality, in this position or that position.

"So show me the players we can go and get and I will tell them 'Yes, this player is okay', or 'No, this player is not'."
