Sunderland boss O'Neill still to decide over buying in January
Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is tightlipped on plans to buy this month.
The situation could force O'Neill's hand in the transfer window, but he said: "I'll speak to the owner in the next couple of days and we'll have a look at it.
"I'll just reiterate, I didn't take this job on the promise of money available in January. The injuries will cause us a problem because when it gets to February 1 that's all you can do, that's it for the season."
