Championship side Wigan are close signing James McClean after Sunderland accepted an undisclosed fee for the Republic of Ireland winger.
After an impressive debut campaign in 2011-12 McClean was extremely disappointing last season and struggled to hold down a place in the side - often not making the bench. There had been reports that Paolo Di Canio was going to give him another shot for the coming season, but after in huge influx of new midfield players at the Stadium of Light it seems the 24-year old was deemed surplus to requirements. Charis Mavrias could be the man to replace him, with Sunderland linked to the young Greek winger throughout the summer. Wed, Aug 7, 2013 09:39:00 AM

Greece winger Charis Mavrias is set to become Paolo Di Canio’s 10th summer signing.

Mavrias is only 19-years-old but the wide-man is highly rated in Greece and has already won two caps for the senior national side. With James McLean rumoured to be leaving the club this summer, Sunderland will need another winger in the squad and Mavrias' pace, dribbling skills and vision seem to fit the bill.

James McClean has admitted he is not sure what will happen over the summer but he is keen to stay at Sunderland.

After an impressive debut campaign in 2011-12 McClean was disappointing last season and struggled to hold down a place in the side, but it seems he wants to fight for his place at Sunderland. There is no doubt he could be a big asset for Di Canio if he can regain his form and with a lack of creative options in the side the Republic of Ireland winger may be given another chance.

The Daily Star report that Sunderland are on verge of signing Basle defensive midfielder Cabral on a four-year deal.

Cabral is out of contract in June so Sunderland would not need to pay a fee for the Swiss Under-21 star. The same article claims that Di Canio is also interested in Celtic striker Gary Hooper and could use winger James McClean in a cash-plus-player deal.
