Sunderland manager Roy Keane has big plans for the Black Cats in the future, but first wants to ensure that his side survive in the Premier League this season.
Keane's side are four points above the drop zone with three games to play and the Irishman wants to build on his current squad, as long as top-flight status is preserved.
He told the Sunderland Echo: "There is plenty to do. If I have said it once, I have said it a million times, we just believe there is a great potential in the football club.
"We are trying to build a football club and to maintain that and to try to keep lifting the standards.
"We have to stay in the Premier League, get stronger, bring in better players and keep pushing each other. I have not really scratched the surface.
"We are delighted with the progress the club is making and if we can stay in the Premier League this year, then we will be fairly pleased.
"But I keep saying it, there is so much hard work ahead."
