Sunderland have signed Manchester City goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon.
Pantilimon came in to City's lineup a few times last year when Joe Hart was struggling and seems to have made a big enough impression to be brought in as a starter. Pantilimon has stated he wants to start and it sounds like he has been promised a starting spot ahead of Vito Mannone. Sunderland showed huge improvement towards the end of last season and Pantilimon could be a sneaky fantasy choice when the matchup is right next season. Jun 16 - 2:45 PM

Costel Pantilimon will start for Manchester City against CSKA Moscow and presumably at Sunderland as well.

What Manuel Pelligirini will do after the international break is anyone's guess, but for now it seems that he's decided to go with the Romanian keeper and give Joe Hart an extended time out of the firing line.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini is undecided who will start Saturday's Premier League game against Norwich in goal after Costel Pantilimon's display in Wednesday's win over Newcastle.

Pantilimon made two fine saves as City won the Capital One Cup tie 2-0 - their first clean sheet in seven games - and with Joe Hart producing numerous errors over the past 18 months it could be time for a wake-up call. We'll know more once team news is announced on Friday.
