Sunderland have landed one of Guy Poyet's stars from his Brighton days with the signing of Will Buckley.
Sky Sports are reporting that a deal for Buckley for a modest £2.5million transfer fee has been completed. We haven't seen anything official yet but you get the feeling that while this may be a nice signing, it isn't the big move that Poyet seems to have been agitating for in the media for most of the summer. The manager has appeared frustrated at the club's ability to close deals when asked by reporters about transfer progress. Buckley will get every chance compete with Sunderland's other versatile wingers - Larsson, Giaccharini, and Adam Johnson - for playing time. Aug 13 - 11:32 AM

Sunderland midfielder Sebastian Larsson has signed a contract extension with the club until 2017.

Larsson endured a difficult start to last season, banished to the bench by Paolo Di Canio, but he fought his way back in to the first team under Gus Poyet and played a key role in Sunderland's great escape. The midfielder remains a handy mid-priced fantasy option, taking the majority of set pieces and is always capable of goals from distance.

Sebastian Larsson scored in the 29th minute and despite late opportunities for Chicharito and Fabio Borini that was how the match ended.

Sunderland, already out of the relegation zone on goal difference may have secured their spot in the top flight with one match to go. An unexpected three points against Manchester United see them three points plus goal differential ahead of Norwich for the final relegation spot with a match in hand and Norwich having matches against Chelsea and Arsenal remaining. It looks like Gus Poyet has achieved what he was brought in to achieve and he should get a chance to build on survival next season.

Sunderland came out with a 2-1 victory over Southampton in the Capital One Cup and will face Chelsea at home in the next round.

Goals from Phil Bardsley and Sebastian Larsson seemed to have closed out the game but a 88th minute strike from Maya Yoshida provided an exciting finish. Sunderland were able to close out the game successfully and are set to play in the quarter-finals. They will be hoping to take some momentum into the Premier League against Manchester City, but considering they have four points in ten games, don't expect much from the Black Cats.

Lazio are keen on Sunderland midfielder Sebastian Larsson, while boss Paolo Di Canio is interested in bringing Raul Meireles to the Stadium of Light.

Larsson only has one year left on his current contract so Di Canio is said to be weighing up the prospect of selling him to the Italian club this summer. If Larsson does move on, the Daily Mail believe experienced ex-Liverpool and Chelsea midfielder Raul Meireles could be making his way back to England after becoming unsettled at his current team Fenerbahce. This would appear to be a good move, with Sunderland lacking Premier League experience in central midfield, despite numerous summer signings.
