Report: Sunderland Agree Deal For Midfielder

Sunderland strike a deal with Inter Milan for the loan signing of Zdravko Kuzmanovic.

There is now only a week left of the transfer window and with rumours about Michael Bradley and Ki Yueng-Sung rumbling on, Sunderland's search for a new midfielder has seemingly stepped up a gear.

Surprisingly however, it's not for Bradley or Ki that Sunderland have made a move for, with reports out of Italy from Sport Mediaset suggesting Sunderland have agreed a deal with Inter Milan for Serbian midfielder Zdravko Kuzmanovic.

The report says that the deal is for a season long loan with a view to a permanent transfer, however it's believed the player himself wants to take time before agreeing to the transfer as there is a possibility of an offer from Everton, which would only happen if they sell Marouane Fellaini.

Kuzmanovic is a 25-year-old midfielder, who only signed for Inter in January but that move hasn't worked out and he has rumoured to be on the move all summer, with ourselves, Aston Villa and West Ham all linked. He had a highly successful spell in the Bundesliga with VfB Stuttgart before earning the move to Inter Milan.

He is a creative central midfielder, who can also play out wide, notable for his passing and set pieces and at 6'1" fits the physical presence Di Canio has been wanting in the middle of the pitch.
