Sunderland set for surprise signings

Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet is hoping to spring a surprise during the remaining days of the summer transfer window.

We're moving, we're moving very fast because it's getting close. I'm confident we'll be doing something.

You're going to be surprised.

Poyet wants unbeatable mentality

Sunderland head coach Gus Poyet is hoping his players return to action still feeing "unbeatable" after last season's great escape.

The good time we had stopped because the season finished.

But we talk a lot about momentum and there are a few players, the players who have been there at the end of the season that finished playing with the feeling of being unbeatable, practically.

I hope that we take it into this season because it is very, very important that we start well in the Premier League.

If you do not, what happened to us last season can happen and, like I said in the beginning, I do not want to suffer again.

– Sunderland manager Gus Poyet
