O'Neill waits on striker bids

Published Add your comment

Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is awaiting the outcome of his club's bids for strikers as the winter transfer deadline fast approaches.

O'Neill revealed after the 0-0 Barclays Premier League draw with Swansea, in which prime target Danny Graham might have snatched victory for the visitors at the death, that the Black Cats had made "a couple" of offers and were hoping for a breakthrough before Thursday's deadline.

He said: "We have made bids for a couple of players, but we didn't make them overnight, we made them some time ago. Of course, it's absolutely the prerogative of the team to whom we have put these bids in either to accept or not accept as the case may be."
