Just two fresh(ish) pieces of transfer news dotting about the place today.
Transfer gossip is slowly bubbling away however it does seem that there have been very few (if any) credible stories. Assuming of course talks with Ellis Short go well for Gus Poyet and he leads our raid of the market – let’s have a look at the areas of our squad in desperate need of strengthening.
With the Premier League season's finale not a week old in the memory, it's no wonder transfer news is slow. It will probably stay that way until after the World Cup, but nonetheless here is today's lunch time update on SAFC rumours.
Here is today’s update regarding SAFC in the transfer market. I think they call this a slow news day.

Santiago Vergini and Marcos Alonso look set to be SAFC's first summer signings as permanent deals are on the horizon – whilst Craig Gardner and Seb Larsson's futures are now clearer.
This summer has been the fifth consecutive transfer window when I have been half expecting, and fully dreading, the news that broke in recent days: that we have sold Stephane Sessegnon. Finally, and perhaps inevitably given the extent of changes that have been made this summer, it happened. Regardless of what else has (or hasn’t) happened this summer...
Liam Bridcutt finally gets his move to Sunderland, after a reported fee of £3 million was agreed with Brighton and Hove Albion FC. The 24-year-old travelled to Wearside to undergo a medical and thrash out personal terms today, signing a three and a half year deal.
Perhaps there is one big signing on the horizon for Sunderland. If reports are to be believed, Gus Poyet's unsurprising penchant for fellow South Americans (mainly Argentinians) looks set to land a little bombshell in Ignacio Scocco. There's a lot we can learn about 'Nacho' through his time in Greece with AEK, so we found just the man to tell us all about him.
South Korean forward Ji Dong-Won has signed for FC Augsburg for an undisclosed fee is has been confirmed by Sunderland officials today.
