Black Cats close in on Bramble

21 Jul 2010 - 09:57:39

Sunderland are closing in on the signing of Titus Bramble from Wigan Athletic with the defender poised to undergo a medical in the north-east.

Manager Steve Bruce has returned to his former club to sign the 28-year-old centre-half for a fee in the region of £1.5million.

Bramble will undergo a medical in the UK before flying out to discuss personal terms with the Black Cats hierarchy at their pre-season training camp in Portugal.

The former England Under-21 international has been with the Latics for three seasons following a free transfer move from Newcastle United.

He made over 100 appearances for the Magpies but regularly found himself under fire following a string of high-profile mistakes.

Meanwhile, Bruce remains hopeful that another defensive target, Sol Campbell, will join the Black Cats on a free transfer when he returns from honeymoon.
