Lee Cattermole will serve a two match suspension for picking up his 10th yellow card of the season in Sunderland's 1-1 draw with Hull.
Cattermole was booked on the hour mark of Tuesday's match for petulantly kicking out at Hull's David Meyler - earning the Sunderland midfielder a 10th yellow card of the season and a subsequent two-match ban. The booking pushes Cattermole up to a career record of 75 yellow cards and 7 red cards, so it's safe to say he's not a player you should ever consider for your fantasy side. Mar 4 - 6:52 AM

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet will ring the changes as the Black Cats entertain Leeds at the Stadium of Light on Sunday in the third round of the FA Cup.

Lee Cattermole is still struggling with the same groin injury which kept him out of the defeat at Manchester City – Jack Rodwell will be hoping to retain his place following a goal against his former club – and Santiago Vergini is likely to be rested after a minor knock / fatigue forced his early withdrawal at the Etihad. Liam Bridcutt [concussion] comes back into the reckoning while fringe players Cabral and Jozy Altidore will be pushing for a start - Emanuele Giaccherini could gain some valuable match-fitness after 3 months out following his recent ankle ligament injury. Poyet confirms Anthony Reveillere and Patrick van Aanholt should join the main group in training from next week.

Sunderland's Lee Cattermole scored a stunning goal as Sunderland drew 2-2 with West Brom at the Hawthorns.

Cattermole's fine long-range effort gave Sunderland a fifth-minute lead before Berahino's brace looked to have secured West Brom an opening day win. However, Sebastian Larsson levelled for the Black Cats with five minutes remaining after great work by Patrick van Aanholt to send the away fans home happy. An entertaining game and a decent point for both teams.

Lee Cattermole is an early doubt for Sunderland's match on Sunday after limping off during the midweek match against West Brom.

Cattermole was impressive during his time on the pitch and was probably Sunderland's best player for big parts of the game. The extent of his injury is unknown but it certainly doesn't sound like a long term problem. With Sunderland guaranteed Premier League status for next season, I wouldn't be surprised if Cattermole was benched as a precaution. Use at your own risk.

Brighton midfielder Liam Bridcutt has become Sunderland’s fifth signing of the January transfer window.

Bridcutt has signed a three-and-a-half-year contract on Wearside and arrives for an undisclosed fee. The Scottish international is reunited with head coach Gus Poyet after the pair worked together at Brighton. The midfielder bagged Brighton's Player of the Season award in both 2012 and 2013, making 151 appearances for the club overall and scoring two goals. His arrival could spell the end for Lee Cattermole, who has been linked to a move away from Sunderland.

Sunderland midfielder Lee Cattermole wants to reclaim his place in the team after accepting the blame for his latest suspension.

Cattermole has been given numerous chances throughout his career but always seems to let his team and manager down with crazy tackles leading to lengthy suspensions. It would be a surprise if Gus Poyet trusted him to suddenly change his ways, but even if the midfield can reclaim his place this site cannot recommend him for your fantasy team. His career record of 57 yellow cards and 7 red cards suggests he'll end up with negative points more often than not.

Gus Poyet is convinced Lee Cattermole will go from strength to strength after stepping out of the Sunderland wilderness.

Cattermole was a forgotten man under Paolo Di Canio but was restored to the starting line-up by caretaker boss Kevin Ball and was instrumental in Gus Poyet's first win as Sunderland manager against Newcastle on Sunday. Despite the midfielder's return to action this site cannot recommend him for your fantasy team; his career record of 57 yellow cards and 6 red cards suggests he'll end up with negative points more often than not.

Sunderland made a winning start to life without sacked manager Paolo Di Canio as the Premier League's bottom club beat Peterborough in the League Cup, with Lee Cattermole restored to the starting line-up.

Cattermole was exiled by Di Canio but was brought in from the cold by caretaker manager Kevin Ball and the midfielder grabbed an assist for Emanuele Giaccherini's opening goal before finishing the game wearing the captain's armband. Valentin Roberge headed home 15 minutes from time to secure a 2-0 win, and smiles were back on the faces of Sunderland's players and fans for the first time this season.

Fulham, in an effort to get younger and tougher in the center of the park, are in serious pursuit of Sunderland's Lee Cattermole.

It isn't often that one mid-table club can pry away another mid-table club's 25 year-old captain. Maybe that should alert Fulham that something is amiss here. That something is Cattermole. He has played a lot of first team football at Sunderland and despite that he hasn't managed to find that middle ground between being a footballer and a goon that can be very effective and intimidating. Rather his footballing intelligence seems to be stuck on a very low number which means others should be thinking of him as a finished (and flawed) article rather than a young, combative, all-effort player who might mature into something special.

The future of Sunderland's Lee Cattermole remains unclear after manager Paolo Di Canio refused to confirm if he will stay at the Stadium of Light.

When asked if Cattermole had a future with Sunderland, Di Canio stated: "We will see. It depends.". The aggressive midfielder has been linked to a move away since the summer transfer window opened and the huge influx of new players make this a real possibility. One potential move would be to join up with his ex-boss Steve Bruce at Hull, who made Cattermole captain during his stint as Sunderland manager.

Sunderland AFC have confirmed that French starlet El Hadji Ba has joined the club.

Ba is a 20-year old defensive midfielder, similar in style to his countryman Alfred N’Diaye, and could either go straight in to the senior squad to challenge the likes of Lee Cattermole or spend some time in the development squad while he adjusts to English football. He is Sunderland's eighth signing of the summer window after Vito Mannone, Valentin Roberge, Modibo Diakite, Cabral, Jozy Altidore, Duncan Watmore and David Moberg Karlsson. The Paolo Di Canio revolution is in full swing.

It is no sure thing that Lee Cattermole will be leaving Sunderland this summer but his career seems to have stalled and Cardiff and Hull are both of the opinion that a change of scenery could help.

The link with Hull and former manager/advocate Steve Bruce is no surprise. With Hull needing (theoretically) Premier League class players and the two having a previous relationship, the link makes sense and could even profit both sides. The link to fellow newly promoted side Cardiff is a bit more of a surprise but between their link to Victor Wanyama and now the link to Cattermole it seems clear that Cardiff is looking to upgrade at holding midfielder.
