Sunderland goalkeeper Keiren Westwood is excited about the season ahead.

The Black Cats have made a number of new signings this summer with Westwood suggesting former FC Basel defensive midfielder and ex-AZ Alkmaar striker Jozy Altidore could make the biggest impact at the Stadium of Light.

"There are a lot of new signings in the squad and we’re evolving to the way the manager wants us to play," he told the club's official website.

"The lads who were here when he arrived last season know what he [Paolo Di Canio] expects from us and now it’s up to the new players to get up to speed.

"Cabral impressed me against Spurs (in the Barclays Asia Trophy) and I think Jozy will make an impact."
