Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has commented on the club's raft of summer signings.
"When you recruit players and bring players in who really do what you want, for the manager it's easier," he told the Sunderland Echo.
"So the better we recruit, the easier it is for me.
"And I'm going to do everything I can to make it easier.
"It's difficult enough so far so I don't want to make it even more difficult!
"I'm going to do my part and give a physical, mental and technical report on the players we've got and what I need."
