[LNB]He said: "It is difficult to talk about individual players. We have registered an interest in the boy [Turner], but that's as far as it's gone as I am aware at the moment."[LNB]Bruce is hoping to finally get the green light to seal a deal for Lyon defender John Mensah.[LNB]Mensah is poised to join Sunderland on a season-long loan deal and Bruce admits they are waiting on a visa for the Ghana international before Mensah makes the move to the Stadium of Light.[LNB]"We are further along with it and we don't envisage a problem," added Bruce. "We are just waiting on the British Embassy in Paris to stamp his visa and once he gets his visa he can get into the country."[LNB]
