O'Shea & Brown 'Inches' Away

It now emerges that not only does Niall Quinn see both deals happening but also manager Steve Bruce is confident deals can be struck for O'Shea and Brown in the next 48 hours.

John O'Shea would be a great addition to our defence and also Wes Brown, who has been strongly linked to Stoke and Everton, as talks seem to have progressed quickly in the last day or so.

Bruce told ESPNsoccernet: 'Yes, it looks good, we are very close, Wes is travelling up for talks and we hope to also speak with O'Shea. I would say we are inches away.'

The deal for Darron Gibson seems less likely as we still discuss his personal details and he may need to lower some demands before Sunderland finalise any deal.
