Players don't have to go to balance the books

Margaret Byrne Sunderland afc’s lady who holds looks after the books reckons Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill won’t have to sell in the forth coming transfer window.

Sunderland’s head of finance said: “No, we don't have to sell players in the summer, definitely not, it is just about doing smarter deals,”

“You don't want to sell players. We sold Jordan (Henderson) at what was the right time for us, and the players we brought in from selling Jordan have had a heck of a lot of influence on the team.

“We brought in Seb Larsson on a free, Craig Gardner in for £5million, Wes Brown in for £1 million and John O'Shea was £5million. Selling at the right time and getting players in at the right time is key."


“Ultimately it is the manager's prerogative. He might see raw talent in someone."
