O'Neill planning major Sunderland clearout
Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is planning for a summer clearout.
The Sunday Mirror says O'Neill will set about creating a side in his own image this summer and the exodus of full internationals could reach double figures.
Heading through the exit door will be left back Wayne Bridge and Greek defender Sotirios Kyrgiakos, who have been on loan at the Stadium of Light. Injury-ravaged Scottish keeper Craig Gordon is another whose contract is up in June.
O'Neill also has to make decisions on £13m Asamoah Gyan, currently on loan at UAR outfit Al-Ain, and Benin star Stephane Sessegnon, who has complained of being homesick.
