Gus Poyet plans to bring in more players to Sunderland in the January transfer window as they continue their bid to beat the drop.

Black Cats manager Poyet is hopeful that he can attract more players to sign for the club, as they now find themselves off the bottom of the Premier league.

Sunderland are unbeaten in three games in all competitions, including the impressive 4-1 win away at Fulham at the weekend. 

Talksport reports that Poyet said: "I tell you, if you had called me at any stage in my career when you are at the bottom, badly, I would think twice about coming.

"I think the club, and the way we have been playing in the last few games, gives any players good options to make the decision."

The Black Cats have been linked with Argentine striker Ignacio Scocco. The 28-year-old, who currently plays for Internacional, is rumoured to be close to signing for Sunderland, but they will have to fight off competiton from Valencia and River Plate, according to SkySports.

Scocco's father said: "The most likely today is that [Scocco] joins Sunderland."

Poyet is also hoping to retain the services of Ki Sung-Yeung ,who is on a season long loan from Swansea City, after impressing the manager so far this season.

Poyet said: "There is a chance (of a full transfer)

"Swansea had an opportunity to call him back, and they didn't. That was a difficult day for me because I was waiting and waiting.

"I think there are a couple of things we need to make sure: where we are and where we want to go, and with the player as well.

"I can see that he's enjoying his football and making a difference."

Sunderland are also said to be interested in Wayne Bridge and Liam Bridcutt from Poyet's former club Brighton.
