Black Cats close in on Fletcher
Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is closing in on his number one summer target as Steven Fletcher headed for Wearside.
The 25-year-old Wolves striker was due to open talks on Thursday over his protracted switch to the Black Cats after the two clubs finally agreed a deal.
Press Association Sport understands Fletcher was due in the north-east to discuss personal terms and to undergo a medical with a view to completing his move ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League fixture against promoted Reading at the Stadium of Light.
