Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is evaluating his current squad before he makes a decision on possible transfer targets.

The new Sunderland boss has only been in charge for two games and is still getting to know the players in his squad before he makes any plans for the future.

Poyet says he will wait until the next international break in late November before making any decisions on where he may need to add to his squad.

He told the Shields Gazette: "We will wait until the international week to sit down and analyse things. That's the time we decided with the club.

"We decided we would have those five or six weeks working with the players and then - after we have hopefully been winning - we will talk about individuals for January.

"Everyone wants to know who and where you want to bring people in. Even if you start winning, you might lose a key player to injury.

"But I would prefer to wait until then, it's perfect because it's the middle of November. That gives us another three or four weeks to work on it after that, and then be ready at the end of December.

"I look to do things early. It's not always possible, but the earlier the better."
