Black Cats close in on another defender

Published Add your comment

Argentinian full-back Marcos Angeleri has joined up with the Sunderland squad as he closes in on his move to English football.

Angeleri has been training with the Black Cats for some time, but has been unable to formally sign because his Italian passport, to which he is entitled through his father, had not been issued.

However, that issue, which means he does not need work permit, has now been resolved and he is expected to join the club from Estudiantes within the next 24 hours.

The news will come as a further boost to manager Steve Bruce, who earlier on Friday made Titus Bramble his fourth summer signing.
