Sunderland close to signing former Newcastle star

Sunderland are closing in the £4million signing of former Newcastle United left back Davide Santon.

The Inter Milan full-back is due to complete a medical with the Wearside club and complete his return to the North-East, just 18 months after he left Sunderlands bitter rivals, Newcastle United.

The Italian left Inter Milan’s pre-season training camp and headed to Englamd to discuss personal terms and finalise the deal, after the two clubs agreed a deal for just £4million.

Santon will be hoping his medical doesn’t cause any problems, after a career blighted with numerous injuries to his knee. He made just 11 appearances for Internazionale last season.
