Sunderland Looking To BUY Premier League Survival?

Salaar Shamsi@SalaarizationSenior Writer IAugust 21, 2008

Sunderland were fighting for their Premier League status last season, fortunately for Roy Keane's men they escaped relegation as Derby County, Reading and Birmingham took the drop.

However, 'Keano' is quite concerned as the season has gotten underway with a 1-0 defeat at the Stadium of Light to Liverpool and the Black Cats boss is looking to buy as many players as he can to evade the drop.

El Hadji Diouf, Teemu Tainio, Pascal Chimbonda, David Meyler, Steed Malbranque and Nick Colgan have already signed for the Black Cats, who are very close to wrapping up deals for Anton Ferdinand, Micheal Ball, Djibril Cisse, David Healy and even the likes of Louis Saha and Benni McCarthy have been linked with club.

Do you reckon it's the right way to battle relegation or should a club look at what they have and try to make a strong combination?
