O'Neill determined to find Sunderland striker signing

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is determined to find a new striker signing.

Wolves hitman Steven Fletcher handed in a transfer request and did not feature in the defeat at Leeds, amid rumours he will soon be joining Sunderland in a £15million deal.

And O'Neill maintains the sooner new men can come in, the better.

"We would have liked to have had some players in before the Arsenal game, but that did not happen," he said.

"We have a lot of spirit about us, but lack quality in some positions. We need some better attacking options."

O'Neill added: "It has been slow, perhaps people's attentions have been elsewhere with a fantastic Olympic Games, but maybe now there might be that bit of movement."
