Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio intends to buy flair players - if they can stay up.
Di Canio will have very clear views on who fits the bill and who does not — and intends to make them known to the owner in the summer.
He said: “When we are talking about signing footballers and for the system I am going to use, then obviously I will ask for the players I want and if it is possible, then I’ll hope to get them. I know how I want to play and what system I want to use.
“I want to play attractive football and get in a better position than we are.”
