David Vaughan: Remains part of Paolo Di Canio's plans

Championship promotion hopefuls Reading are said to have expressed an interest in Vaughan, who has also attracted attention from Premier League new boys Hull City and Crystal Palace.

He will face added competition for places this season if he remains at the Stadium of Light, with Di Canio having overseen a major summer rebuilding job on Wearside.

The Italian is, however, of the opinion that his efforts during the current transfer window have taken Sunderland up to where they need to be in terms of numbers.

For that reason, he is hoping to avoid seeing any departures sanctioned before 2nd September.

He said: "I don't expect many players to leave before the transfer deadline.

"A lot of players leaving is simply not part of the plan - we do not have a big squad. I'll look to make the most of every player."

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
