David Moyes closing in on first Sunderland signing: Star man set to pen deal

Pienaar is training with Sunderland, having yet to get fixed up with a club since Everton freed him.

Moyes knows all about the South African and, with the Black Cats’ squad in desperate need of strengthening, may be ready to hand the 34-year-old a short-term contract.

Meanwhile, newly promoted Middlesbrough are set to land West Brom centre-half James Chester in a £4m deal.

With Daniel Ayala and new signing Bernardo Espinosa unlikely to be fit for the Premier League curtain-raiser at home to Stoke, boss Aitor Karanka is short of defensive options.
