Sunderland are close to completing a £1.5m deal for long-term defensive target Marcos Angeleri.[LNB] The Black Cats have agreed a deal with the Argentinian full-back's current club, Estudiantes, and have agreed personal terms with Angeleri and his representatives.[LNB] However, the transfer will not be confirmed until Angeleri has received an Italian passport, which will remove the need for a work permit to play in the Premier League.[LNB] Angeleri is one of two right-backs due to arrive on Wearside in the next few days.[LNB] Ahmed al-Muhammadi should undergo a medical in the North-East later today after Sunderland officials agreed a season-long loan with Egyptian side ENPPI, with a view to a permanent transfer next summer.[LNB] The moves cast a major doubt over Phil Bardsley's future at the Stadium of Light.[LNB]
