Having moved on from talks with Vito Mannone, Sunderland look set to sign Bayern Munich’s 22 year old goalkeeper Ron Thorben-Hoffmann before tomorrow’s deadline.

The deal will be a loan for the season with a view to making it permanent, similar to the deal we’re also trying to strike for Bayern’s German youth international winger Leon Dajaku.

Hoffmann - a towering presence, standing at 6”4 - has played over 50 games for Bayern Munich II, and has also made appearances at youth level for Germany.
