Manchester United’s John O’Shea close to joining Sunderland - chairman Niall Quinn

Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn is hopeful he can wrap up deals for Manchester United's John O’Shea and Darron Gibson.

O’Shea, 30, has been a handy utility defender at Old Trafford, racking up nearly 400 appearances, whilst Gibson, 23, has been unable to maintain regular football with the Premier League champions and could be open to moving for first-team action elsewhere.

The story is too old to be commented.
