Sunderland boss O'Neill prepared for last minute buys August 10, 2012, 2:05 am

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill will go to the very last minute of the transfer window to secure reinforcements for the Black Cats squad.

He said: "Unfortunately, I have been involved in late scrambles before, so it's nothing new to me in that sense.

"Obviously, the most important issue is to try to get them in before the deadline finishes.

"Ideally it would be great to get them in and be part of the club before you kicked off the season, and we will do our utmost to do that.

"But unfortunately, I am unable to promise anything other than that we do have players in mind and we are trying our best to get them."
