Manchester United defender John O'Shea is due to have a medical at Sunderland on Thursday.

Press Association Sport understands the 30-year-old Republic of Ireland international was on his way to Wearside on Thursday morning hot on the heels of team-mate Wes Brown, who was in the north east for his medical on Wednesday night.

A successful completion of both deals would take manager Steve Bruce's summer signings to date to eight.
