Sunderland skipper Whitehead expects major squad changes

Sunderland captain Dean Whitehead expects big squad changes this summer.

"There will be big changes this summer," he said. "That seems par for the course at this club, but we have to hope the changes are all for the good. It's a short summer this season, with the league finishing quite late. We'll enjoy the break and all come back ready to go again next season. There's never a dull moment at Sunderland, so I'm sure it's going to be emotional whatever happens.

"It is said that the second season after promotion to the Premier League can be hard and it has been for us. This place deserves better and those fans deserve better than us just staying up on the last day of the season. It will be an attractive job for someone and an exciting job, I'm sure."
