Sunderland manager David Moyes will do plenty more wheeling and dealing ahead of the transfer deadline.

After signing four players and showing others the exit door at the Stadium of Light, new boss David Moyes is continuing to reshape his squad.

He might have to manage without defender Younes Kaboul, one of the key men is last season's successful fight against relegation.

With central defensive partner Lamine Kone's future also hanging in the balance, Moyes could have some wheeling and dealing to do.

In the absence of more new faces, the former Everton and Manchester United manager is happy to give youth a chance, as he showed on Saturday at Manchester City.

Meanwhile, another of the club's fringe players has today been allowed to leave.
