O'Neill will let fringe players leave on loan

Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill has confirmed that he will let his fringe players seek first-team football when the emergency loan window opens on Saturday.

O'Neill brought in Steven Fletcher, Adam Johnson, Carlos Cuellar, Louis Saha and Danny Rose to the Stadium of Light during the transfer window and now feels he has enough strength in depth to let players depart temporarily.

"When the transfer window was still open, the most important aspect for me was what players we had available and to make sure that we were covered," O'Neill told the Sunderland Echo.

"But now the emergency loan window is getting ready to open this weekend, I'll look at other things. There is the possibility that maybe some players will go out on loan."

With his new signings starting to settle into the club, those on the fringes, including some of the squad's younger members, will be allowed to join a new side on a temporary basis.

O'Neill admitted that he is in favour of emergency loans as the club has the option to recall the player if needed.

"The key thing there is that they would be going on emergency loans, which means they could be called back after 28 days if necessary," he said.

"I don't mind allowing players to leave on emergency loans because they will be getting games and, providing we can survive the first 28 days, if we pick up injury problems, we can recall them."

The Black Cats manager has allowed one extended loan deal out of the club during the summer's transfer window. Ahmed Elmohamady reunited with former Sunderland boss Steve Bruce at Hull City.

O'Neill explained that the Egyptian had expressed a desire to play games, thus why the deal went ahead.

"Elmo was keen to play games, and that's why I allowed him to join Hull," he added. "He will play matches there and the deal includes a clause that means we can recall him in January, if we need to."
