Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is still hoping to sign Marcos Alonso but admits a deal is 'close, but not close enough'.
Alonso had a successful loan spell from January of last season, making 16 Premier League appearances including some key performances during Sunderland's remarkable run-in to avoid relegation. The defender returned to Fiorentina in May and the Italian club would like to keep him, but Alonso himself is reportedly keen to return to the Premier League. Gus Poyet is working on a permanent deal ahead of the new season, with the Black Cats desperate to add another full-back to their squad. Wed, Jul 23, 2014 10:04:00 AM

In a week with very few good fantasy performers, Marcos Alonso stood out with two clean sheets and an assist.

On top of the two clean sheets and the assist, Alonso added a series of defensive stats that led him to a total of 26 fantasy points in the double gameweek. Sunderland play a winnable match against Swansea on Sunday and Alonso can be a good fantasy pick for the final week of the season. He has shown he can contribute in a variety of categories and can produce even without a clean sheet.
