Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn has promised that more money will be given to Roy Keane to spend on new players to ensure the Black Cats remain in the Premier League.
Keane's side are only one point above the relegation zone after nine matches of the season but Quinn will make more cash available to add to that already spent on the likes of Craig Gordon, Kenwyne Jones, Michael Chopra and Greg Halford.
Quinn said: "We'll do exactly the same as we did during the previous transfer windows.
"We're changing nothing. We already have a terrific bunch of players. Roy (Keane) and chief scout Mick Brown have identified targets.
"Chief executive Peter Walker and I will be doing everything we can to make sure the manager gets the signatures he wants.
"We've delivered and the aim is to deliver again. The manager will be looking to recruit next January, so I'm already looking at that.
"We believe in him and we're prepared to fund that belief, but other clubs are doing that too, which makes it interesting.
"There's a lot of new money in the Premier League, and that means there's more than just the top-four to compete with. But we feel we're a club that can be so big that it's right for us to be ambitious in the transfer market."
