Last season Sunderland finished a respectable 10th in the Premier league and five players were recruited via the loan system.
Steve Bruce has said that he intends to use loan players and hire players who have a 'point to prove' and give him the best value for money.
Sunderland will be looking to seal a loan deal for Danny Welbeck and Nedum Onuoha and Bruce will look for other players in a bid to climb the table in 2011/12.
'I always go into the loan market - certainly with British players - looking for a player who has something to prove,' Bruce told the Evening Chronicle.
'Nedum and Danny last season, the one thing about them was they were desperate to play regularly, and when you have that sort of hunger in a player it helps us and them. That is my thinking.
'It also helps you financially too. Imagine trying to buy Danny, Nedum or Sulley Muntari on the open market.
'The downside is the fact you rarely have them for longer than a season.
'Where else can you find an £8m defender or £10m striker for your squad for nothing?'
Bruce added: 'It does help to bring in loan players but it is a skill in itself picking them, looking to get players who can do the job and will do the job for you.
'To be fair to my two domestic signings, Danny and Nedum, I could not have asked for more from them in terms of the efforts they put in.
'It worked out well for them too, because both have enhanced their own careers thanks to a season at Sunderland.
'It is an area of recruitment which has become more important in recent seasons and this summer we will be looking at the loan market again to see where we can gain value for money.'
