O'Neill set to bolster forward options
Martin O'Neill looks set to have finally landed his man as Steven Fletcher has travelled to Sunderland for a medical.
The Black Cats have been courting the 25-year-old all summer and, after having had a number of bids rejected, Wolves have reportedly accepted a fee in the region of £12m.
Fletcher still has to agree terms but Sunderland will be hoping to wrap up the move in time for Saturday's game against Reading at the Stadium of Light.
Wolves had stuck to their guns over their star assets in the wake of the club's relegation from the Premier League but Fletcher had handed in a transfer request in a bid to secure a move.
Sunderland have been in search of a goalscorer following the departure of Darren Bent in January last year, while they signed Nicklas Bendtner on a season-long loan last term.
O'Neill had signed Louis Saha earlier this month to provide attacking options ahead of the new season, but looks set to improve those further with the acquisition of the former Hibs hitman.
Punters looking to use their free bet will no doubt be aware that Sunderland are also in the hunt for Adam Johnson, who looks set to leave Manchester City.
