Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio is ready to clean house after their draw with Southampton.

Regardless of what transpires when the Wearsiders bring the curtain down at Tottenham next weekend, there will be a major shake-up when they return after the summer.

Di Canio said: "Let me be sure that we are going to keep the club up, and then I am going to change everything. I am going to change everything.

"I'm not going to push all the players out, but I am going to keep the right players and bring in the right players if it is possible.

"When I came, obviously I knew before the quality we had was exciting, talking about Stephane (Sessegnon), (Adam) Johnson, (John) O'Shea at the back and many others, young fellas with quality.

"But the environment - I am not accusing anyone, but it was dead, the environment was dead, now I can tell you."
