Sunderland boss Roy Keane has revealed he is prepared to let a number of his fringe players leave this month.
Ross Wallace, David Connolly, Greg Halford, Graham Kavanagh, Ian Harte and Stephen Wright have all been informed they can move on during this month's transfer window.
Keane is trying to fund his own transfer moves and is prepared to offload some players to bolster his coffers.
The Irishman revealed he had talked with all the players and is now waiting to see what offers come in for them.
Manage the squad"We're looking to bring a number of players in during the window that can play a key role this season and that means we have to manage the squad," said Keane.
"There are some players that I'd consider going out on loan or moving on if it's right for the player and the club and I've spoken to some of the lads.
"I had a chat with Ross (Wallace), Dave (Connolly), Greg(Halford), Kav (Kavanagh), Hartey (Harte) and Wrighty (Wright) and told them if a club comes in for them this month I'd be prepared to have a chat.
