After our report yesterday about Gino Peruzzi being 'close' to a move to Sunderland, things appear to be moving along swiftly in regards to this transfer.

Yesterday evening a report out of Argentina suggested that a fee had been agreed with Sunderland for around €5m and that Vélez Sarsfield's game against Newell's Old Boys on Saturday could be his last for the club.

Then late last night, Gino Peruzzi himself gave an interview with Vélez Radio in which he talked about Sunderland's interest;

We'll see if the offer from Sunderland for me suits myself and Vélez. I'd like to go to that club.

He then said he would wait until after the Newell's Old Boys match before resolving his future but that the Premier League has his favourite kind of football

From Saturday onwards we will see what is done about my future.

The football I like personally is the English, because of the pace it has.

Peruzzi, despite only being 21, already has four caps for Argentina and was recently linked with Manchester City but notably, Inter Milan, where Javier Zanetti was championing his cause. So if Sunderland can get this transfer over the line, it will be quite the coup.
