SUNDERLAND have agreed a fee with Velez Sarsfield for defender Gino Peruzzi, according to the Argentinian club’s chairman.

Miguel Callelo said: “(The clubs) talked about the payment conditions and the values. We reached an agreement quickly.

“Now Gino Peruzzi’s representatives and the English club need to reach an agreement.

“When this kind of proposal comes, it’s hard to say no. If we turn them down, we might never receive this kind of proposal again.”

The 21-year-old has four senior caps for Argentina.
