Sunderland are in talks to bring New York Red Bulls midfielder Tim Cahill back to the Barclays Premier League.

Press Association Sport understands that discussions are ongoing over a proposed loan move which would see the former Everton star line up for the Black Cats during the MLS off-season.

Manager Martin O'Neill is keen to boost his attacking options during the January transfer window, and while Cahill's addition would represent a temporary solution, it would certainly add firepower to a squad which has rallied in recent weeks, but is still too close to the wrong end of the table.
