Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is keen to find loan clubs for his players.

Connor Wickham has joined Sheffield Wednesday, while David Vaughan is now with Nottingham Forest.

"We're trying to be fair with the players," Poyet told the Sunderland Echo.

"Who, when and where depends on the club, the manager and the player. I don't like to push people out. I like to make sure they know where they stand.

"But there are options because of the quantity we have and the difficulties of keeping everybody happy."
