Sunderland's Paolo Di Canio keen to boost midfield

Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio reveals that he wants to sign another midfielder before the end of the summer transfer window.

Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio has revealed that he is keen to sign another midfielder before the end of the transfer window.

The Black Cats, who have already added 10 names to their squad this summer, lost their opening game of the Premier League season 1-0 at home to Fulham on Saturday.

"If we can bring in only one player, without selling (Stephane) Sessegnon, it would have to be absolutely a central midfielder," Di Canio told the Sunderland Echo.

"If we can bring two - it would be a central midfielder and a winger, and then if three players, a central midfielder, a winger and a left-back."

Sunderland continue their campaign this weekend with a trip to Southampton.
