Sam Allardyce's response when asked whether any of Sunderland's players will leave on loan

Sam Allardyce does not expect much transfer activity at Sunderland today.

Sam Allardyce has told the Sunderland Echo that he doesn’t expect any senior players to be leaving Sunderland on loan before the close of the emergency loan window.

The loan window shuts for the season at midnight tonight, with a number of Football League clubs looking to tie up some business.

However, Allardyce insists that no senior players will be leaving the Stadium of Light.

“No, I’m not expecting anyone to go before the deadline," he said. "Not any of the senior squad, anyway.

“Maybe at the younger end there might be one or two who could go out to get some first team experience.”

Sunderland have managed to offload a number of their players on loan since Allardyce has come in.

The likes of Danny Graham, Jordi Gomez, Liam Bridcutt, Adam Matthews and Steven Fletcher are all currently on temporary spells away from the club.

Graham and Gomez are on loan with Blackburn Rovers, Bridcutt is impressing while with Leeds and Matthews has agreed to move to Bristol City until the end of the season.

Fletcher, meanwhile, is playing for Marseille, but he is yet to score for the Ligue 1 side.

According to the Sunderland Echo, Liam Agnew, Tommy Robson and Tom Beadling are three most likely youngsters to leave the Wearsiders on loan today.
