Jack Rodwell to Sunderland: Manchester City midfielder at Sunderland training ground as £10m deal nears completion
The former Everton man has won three full England caps
The midfielder, who has won three full England caps, will reportedly sign a five-year contract with the Wearsiders.
Rodwell signed for City from Everton for £12m in August 2012, but he has failed to break into the City side during his largely uneventful two years with the club.
The Black Cats manager Gus Poyet claimed over the weekend that he was anticipated plenty of activity in the transfer market before the window closes at the end of this month.
"There are plenty of things going on and I’m looking forward to things happening in the next few days, so it’s all positive," Poyet said.
"I think we have a great chance [of signing players], a great chance. People are going to be surprised, which is great. It's all positive."

Poyet added: "We've had a few things that before we knew it they didn't work. But I'm hoping there’s going to be some good news over the next two or three days."
