Poyet stalls new contract talks at Sunderland

Gus Poyet is stalling on opening new contract talks with Sunderland.

The Black Cats boss is keen to focus on strengthening his squad in the coming weeks for the January market.

The Sun says Sunderland want Poyet to sign a new contract but he will look for more power to buy players before agreeing to any deal.

The Uruguayan is currently working with Lee Congertan, the club's technical director, in terms of transfer plans.

Poyet's current deal expires in 2016.
