Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio is ready to offload a raft of fringe players in the coming weeks.

With nine players already signed, Sunderland's focus will switch to sales as they look to make space for yet more new faces, says The Journal.

Phil Bardsley and Lee Cattermole have been told to find new clubs after Di Canio decided against taking them to South East Asia.

David Vaughan is interesting Crystal Palace, Bursaspor are looking at January signing Alfred N'Diaye and Lazio have been credited with an interest in Sebastian Larsson, while there were reports at the weekend of Premier League interest in Craig Gardner.
