Last updated : 22 August 2005 By Sam
The 27-year-old former West Ham midfielder is expected to sign a two-year deal at The Stadium of Light once the club have received international clearance.

"He'll be here hopefully today (Monday) at some stage," Black Cats boss Mick McCarthy told Sky Sports.

"We are just waiting for international clearance.

"He's a defensive midfield player who can play in the back four as well.

"He's big and tall, 6ft 3in, and a very powerful player."
