Sunderland look to have just snapped up Stoke’s Ricardo Fuller for £3million however it seems Steve may just have something else up his sleeve.
Bruce is now planning a £9million swoop for Charles N’Zogbia.
Bruce originally signed N’Zogbia during his time at Wigan and is said to be keen on re-uniting with the winger. Though, Liverpool have also previously been linked with the 24-year-old, though rumours of a potential Anfield move have muted.
Things are beginning to hot up in the current window and moves like this are beginning to look move likely.
Sunderland are also lining up a transfer bid for USA International Michael Bradley, sources with knowledge of the deal told Fox Soccer on Monday.The yank currently plies his trade in the Bundesliga for Borussia Moenchengladbach.
So what say you Mackem fans? A tasty bit of business for the boys in red and white? Or just a stop-gap solution for the loss of Bent?
