Poyet To Get 30m Windfall So Spend
Gus Poyet's son Diego could be the new manager's first signing as Sunderland manager.
The former Brighton boss will have a staggering £30million to spend in January to turn around his team's fortunes.
Poyet allegedly has his 18-year-old old son Diego Poyet a top target.
The youngster is a midfielder at Championship side Charlton, where he is regarded as a star for the future.
Arsenal and Manchester United have previously tried to sign him, but Poyet junior now looks set to link up with his father on Wearside.
Sunderland will make a £2million bid to lure him away from Charlton, with the opportunity to work with his dad likely to prove too tough to turn down.
Diego, who has been compared to Cesc Fabregas, is an England Under-18 regular and has already vowed to snub approaches from Uruguay to continue his Three Lions career.
