Sunderland boss Bruce excited about shopping at top shelf

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is excited about the prospect of shopping at the top end of the transfer market.

He told The Journal: "I will scour the market and see what's available.

"June tends to be pretty quiet with a lot of managers on their summer break. The jostling for position hasn't really started yet - but I will scour around before I lie on my sunbed!

"I haven't had a conversation about how much money there is available, but I have spoken to the owner and he doesn't want to be involved at the bottom [of the Premier League] again. He did say he will back me.

"I have always been good value for money in the transfer market, and I will always try to be. But I'm looking at players I have never looked at before.

"It's like shopping in Harrods now, not Tesco.

"I don't have specific targets just yet, but I do have one or two ideas up my sleeve."
