Sunderland set to announce £6m deal for American forward Jozy Altidore
Phil Bardsley has emerged as a target for Fulham
Sunderland will today confirm the signing of the American forward Jozy Altidore on a four-year contract.
Altidore will move for a fee of almost £6m to the Stadium of Light as Paolo di Canio continues a major overhaul of the squad he inherited from Martin O'Neill.
The 23-year-old has scored 48 goals for AZ Alkmaar in the last two seasons and played in the Premier League with Hull in 2009.
Phil Bardsley, who infuriated Di Canio at the end of last season when he was photographed in a casino surrounded by £50 notes, is a target for Fulham.
