Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is keen to add more creativity to his midfield.
O'Neill admits they asked too much of Stephane Sessegnon last season.
He said: â€œWe need to bring in more creativity.
â€œThere is a lot of reliance on Sessegnon and we need to share the burden a bit. It is not a guarded secret we need to score more goals and make more goals.
â€œI thought at the end of the season the number of games Sess had played caught up with him.
â€œHe lost a wee bit of sharpness over the last four or five games â€“ maybe just after Manchester City when he was brilliant."
