Poyet wants January investment to aid Sunderland's survival bid.

Sunderland manager Gus Poyet is growing impatient with the players brought to the club by predecessor Paolo Di Canio, and could be set to alter his squad to the tune of seven new players in the January transfer window according to The Telegraph.

With the Black Cats propping the rest of the Premier League table up from the bottom, sitting five points behind second bottom side Crystal Palace, Poyet knows that his side need to turn around their fortunes as soon as possible, and doesn’t believe that many of Di Canio’s signings are not good enough to succeed in the Premier League.

He has asked owner Ellis Short for funding to bring in at least seven new players next month, and could well seek to offload a large chunk of the 14 new faces brought in by Italian Di Canio during the summer.

Should Sunderland lose their next Premier League tie against West Ham – who sit tied with Palace on 13 points – it means the Black Cats will be eight points away from safety, and with the midway point fast approaching things are starting to look gloomy at the Stadium of Light, despite clear optimism resulting from an improvement of on-field performances – in general – since Poyet’s arrival.

The Uruguayan manager said: "I am working on signings in January for sure. We always thought there were positions we needed to address and there are plenty of things going on behind the scenes. I hope that will help."
