Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio could sign a new team in the next month.
The Mirror says Di Canio could land 10 new players by August and Inter Milan midfielder Alfred Duncan is on the radar although a £5m bid for the Ghanaian was turned down.
Sunderland have landed Modibo Diakite, Cabral and Valentin Roberge on free transfers. Swedish winger David Moberg Karlsson joined last week.
The Under-21 ranks have been bolstered by the arrivals of Duncan Watmore from Altrincham and Le Havre’s France Under-20 player El-Hadji Ba.
