We're now in the final hours of the January transfer window and we here at Roker Report intend on giving you full coverage of it from a Sunderland perspective.

We're not expecting too many incomings at the Stadium Of Light today in all honesty, although Martin O'Neill seems desperate to bring a striker in, and top target Danny Graham is still there for the taking if a good enough offer is made. There's also been (likely misleading) rumours of a return for Darren Bent, or Leeds United forward Luciano Becchio.

Elsewhere in the team there's always the outside chance of a move for Aiden McGeady who has long been a target of O'Neill's, although he'd have to go some to land the Spartak Moscow winger today.

As for those who could be heading out, Louis Saha's move to a South African side could be completed today although their transfer window remains open for longer. James McFadden could be resigned and immediately loaned out, and finally there's no movement expected for Ahmed Elmohamady, but don't rule out a return to Hull City just yet.

O'Neill sprung some surprises on us last time around with Wayne Bridge and Sotirios Kyrgiakos coming to the club, so while we anticipate a quiet deadline day, surprises could be in the offing.

We're going to have all the reports, reaction and latest rumours right here in our Transfer Deadline Day live blog, so stay tuned!
