Black Cats close in on Bramble

21 July 2010 09:57
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.
