Sunderland chiefs unconvinced by Poyet transfer work

Sunderland's board remain unconvinced by manager Gus Poyet's work in the transfer market.

Sunderland's board remain unconvinced by manager Gus Poyet's work in the transfer market.

The Daily Mail says there is a clause in his contract that allows him to leave for a new job this summer which was activated by Sunderland avoiding relegation.

Poyet will hold talks with owner Ellis Short and Margaret Byrne after Sunday’s clash against Swansea, a meeting that is likely to prove pivotal in determining the Uruguayan’s future.

Sunderland's transfer policy will be a key discussion point when summit talks take place.

There remain reservations from the club hierarchy about Poyet’s January signings, Oscar Ustari, Ignacio Martin Scocco and Liam Bridcutt.

Ustari hasn’t played a league game since arriving from Almeria, Scocco hasn’t started a single game while Bridcutt has recently lost his place in the starting line-up.
