Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is still trying desperately trying to land striking reinforcements before the transfer window closes on Thursday.

Swansea's Danny Graham, who could line up against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light tomorrow night, is at the top of O'Neill's wish-list.

The Ulsterman admitted his attacking resources are the main focus: "Of course, of course it is.

"There was always interest in Fraizer (Campbell) and we said we would prefer him not to go, if that was the case, until we had got someone else in.

"I felt this was a big opportunity for Fraizer. He didn't want to disappear and so I allowed him to go.

"But I am hopeful that something will develop for us. We have got a couple of days left and we are hoping ourselves that we can add somebody else to the squad if at all possible.

"We are still looking there because come February 1, that's it. But we will see what we can do.

"There are some days left here and we will try to do something about it. I am hopeful, but there's nothing guaranteed."
