Carl Winchester becomes Lee Johnson's first signing as the new Sunderland manager looks to add some much needed quality in the middle of the park.
Striker, check. Defender, check .Midfielder, check...
Sunderland's second signing of the January transfer window arrived.
Hurrah! A signing!
10 hours to go until the January transfer window closes and Sunderland still have a lot to do.
After months of will-he won't-he sign, Sunderland are reportedly resigned to losing Josh Maja quicker than expected.
Whilst Jack Ross is still searching for a striker to add to the senior squad, Sunderland have managed to complete the signing of young Frenchman Lilyan Compper. Meanwhile, Lee Cattermole is looking to make a move to France to reunite with Gus Poyet.
It looks like Sunderland will do very little business before the transfer window shuts.
Lee Cattermole has made it very clear he wishes to depart the club and it is looking like Hull City are ready to snap him up if they can get past the stumbling block of his wages. Meanwhile, Jack Ross is keeping his eye on Rangers midfielder Greg Docherty.
Reports claim Lamine Kone will leave Sunderland for Strasbourg in a loan deal containing a €2m purchase option.
