Sbragia wants Sunderland signings

Ricky Sbragia
Sbragia has already lined up a transfer target for January's window

Sunderland manager Ricky Sbragia says he has signings in mind to strengthen his squad in January's transfer window.

Sbragia, 52, who was confirmed as the club's manager before Sunday's 3-0 defeat at Everton, is also keen to recall some of the club's loan players.

"We have identified a player we want," he told BBC Radio Newcastle.

"We also have to consider the loan players. Michael Chopra's loan spell comes to an end on the 29 December and he will give us another body."

The Scot is looking forward to having extra personnel to select from for the visit of Bolton in the FA Cup third round on Saturday.

"If we miss a few players then it does affect the team but the squad itself should be big enough to take that," he said.
