Poyet insists Sunderland will only buy from top drawer

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet wants to shop from the top drawer in January.

Poyet is seeking signings capable of making the difference.

"It's quality or nothing, not quantity. Quantity at this club is finished.

"We're not signing quantity any more. I don't want any more, 'maybe if in three months' time (they will come good)'. There were too many of those in the last three years and in the end the team suffers. You can't progress with too many changes.

"The more players we bring in to certain positions, the better and easier it will be for me. We're not playing even 50 per cent of the way I want."
