Sunderland chasing former Chelsea defender


Sunderland appear to be leading the race to bring former Chelsea defender Michael Mancienne back to England.

Mancienne, 26, wants to return to the UK after 3 years playing for Hamburg in Germany, and Sunderland are ahead of Stoke, Swansea, QPR and Championship-bound Fulham in the race to tie up a bargain £1million deal. Sunderland are confident a deal could happen as sporting director Lee Congerton has a history with the player, and will be recommending him to Guy Poyet.

With just 12 months left on his contract, Mancienne will be able to leave for a knockdown fee.
