Sunderland boss O'Neill ready for Short transfer talks

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is set for transfer talks with chairman Ellis Short.

Short was on Wearside to take in Sunderland's 2-2 draw at the Stadium of Light against relegation-threatened Bolton Wanderers.

O'Neill said: "He (Short) joined us last night for a bite of dinner with the rest of the team and he does that occasionally, but it was not really a proper chance to speak.

"I think both of us were more interested in what was in front of us. I am not sure what I had but would not mind having it now, but no doubt we will get an opportunity to speak.

"I think he has a really good awareness anyway and I am not so sure we needed today to have any explanation for things or perspectives on things. We will sit down and have a discussion on it but obviously we want to try and get stronger."
