Banega set to join Sunderland?

Valencia midfielder Ever Banega is on the verge of joining Premier League club Sunderland, reports indicate.

Superdeporte lead with the news this morning that the Argentina international will sign for Gus Poyet’s men soon.

The 25-year-old has been surplus to requirements at Mestalla this term, leaving in January to join Newell’s Old Boys on loan.

Los Che are willing to sell Banega, and it is the north-east side who are thought to have stumped up with the €10m asking fee.
