Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio is still looking to strengthen his side before the end of the transfer window, despite already bringing in a number of players to the club this summer. 

The Black Cats have signed no fewer than 10 players in a busy few months on Wearside, as Di Canio looks to put his mark on the Sunderland team going into his first full season in charge at the Stadium of Light. 

And, despite insisting he pleased with his business so far, the Italian still wants to make some more additions to his squad. 

"If there is a chance then one or two more would be welcome and the club is working on this," said Di Canio, according to BT Sport.

"I'm happy up front and at the back and I'm happy in the middle, but we miss something. I hope in the next few days we are going to get something there.

"I'm not worried about having a large squad because I want to have a chance to choose from a group of five rather than only two.

"For me it's important to have players pushing for their place, and the other players have to maintain their place by doing well daily."

Among his new recruits are striker Jozy Altidore, who joined from AZ Alkmaar after an impressive season in Holland, and former Juventus winger Emanuele Giaccherini, who left the Serie A champions for the Premier League. 

Sunderland kick-off their league campaign this weekend, as they host Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday, hoping to improve on last season's disappointing 17th-place finish as they narrowly escaped relegation.
