Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill insists that he does not expect new signing Louis Saha to start every game for the Black Cats.

Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill has admitted that new striker Louis Saha is unlikely to be a regular starter for the North-East club.

The former Everton forward, who spent a loan stint at Tottenham Hotspur last season, finalised a switch to the Stadium of Light yesterday on a one-year deal.

"I'm not expecting him to play every single game," said O'Neill. "That would be an enormous ask for him, but in the course of time I think he can help us.

"Despite Saha coming in we're hoping to still strengthen and we want to do because it's a long season."

The Black Cats go up against Arsenal in the opening day of the new Premier League season tomorrow.
