Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill won't allow any of his players to leave on-loan.

O'Neill has blocked loan exits for Sunderland's Titus Bramble and David Vaughan, says The Sun.

Ipswich wanted Bramble back at Portman Road for the rest of the season.

And Blackpool boss Ian Holloway admits he would love to have Vaughan once again pulling the strings in his midfield. O'Neill declared: "There are a number of players out on loan at this minute and it's something I'll have to have a serious look at."
