01 February 2010 11:17
Steve Bruce is hopeful Benjani Mwaruwari will soon be unveiled as a Sunderland player despite the transfer deadline having passed. The Black Cats manager believes all the paperwork had been submitted in time ahead of the 5pm deadline and is optimistic the Manchester City striker is heading for the Stadium of Light. The 31-year-old joined City from Portsmouth in a protracted deal at the end of the January 2008 transfer window which required the Premier League to scrutinise whether the deal had in fact been completed on time. Bruce is optimistic and told ESPN: "I think we've lodged everything it in time, we've done everything we possibly can and I'm convinced we had everything in in time."
