Sunderland boss Keane set for major clearout

Sunderland boss Roy Keane is ready to make big squad changes in the summer.

The Daily Mail says Keane has insisted sentiment will not come into the decision making process as he looks to the future - he transfer-listed Greg Halford, Ross Wallace, David Connolly, Stanislav Varga, Ian Harte, Steven Wright and Graham Kavanagh in January and later added Liam Miller to the list for poor time-keeping.

In addition, Andy Cole, Russell Anderson and Clive Clarke have joined Wright, Halford, Kavanagh and Varga in being sent out on loan, and only Dwight Yorke of those players who are out of contract at the end of the season seems likely to be offered a new deal.
