Cape Town - Doom and gloom may be on the cards for Dick Advocaat after Sunderland's work in the transfer window.

Sunderland transfers rated: 5/10

While the Black Cats did well to see the back of a few squad members, the jury will remain out on several of the players brought in to keep Sunderland in the Premier League.

Transfer summary:

In: Sebastian Coates (Liverpool, undisclosed), Younes Kaboul (Spurs, undisclosed), Jeremain Lens (Dynamo Kiev, undisclosed), Yann M'Villa (Rubin Kazan, loan), Fabio Borini (Liverpool, £10m), Ola Toivonen (Rennes, loan), Adam Matthews (Celtic, £2m)

Out: Anthony Reveillere (released), Santiago Vergini (Getafe, loan), Connor Wickham (Crystal Palace, £9m), Emanuele Giaccherini (Bologna, loan), El Hadji Ba (Charlton, undisclosed)

Best bit of business: Fabio Borini has a lot to prove and he if does, his goals could be key to keeping Sunderland up this season.

Worst bit of business: Advocaat's side still lack quality in (almost all) parts of the pitch.
