Sunderland are closing in on a double signing with Everton winger Aiden McGeady finally set to move to Wearside.
McGeady is understood to be on Wearside having his medical after sorting out his contractual issues with Premier League side Everton.
Simon Grayson made him his first target when he became Sunderland boss and the Black Cats look to have finally landed their man.
It comes as Sunderland also close in on Bury striker James Vaughan.
Vaughan has travelled to Sunderland to discuss personal terms after the Black Cats agreed a fee with Bury for the striker.
Sunderland's hopes of landing Bournemouth winger Max Gradel could be dashed though.
The 29-year-old wideman was earmarked as one of Grayson's main summer targets, with the Black Cats hopeful of landing him on a season-long loan deal with the option to buy next summer.
The Cherries were always keen on a permanent deal, which would have cost Sunderland around £3million.
But Sunderland's hopes of landing him could be dashed with fresh reports Gradel is now likely to join either Nantes or Toulouse instead of staying in England.
