SAFC Paper Talk #14

SAFC Paper Talk #14
Sunderland look set to bolster their defensive ranks imminently after a deal for centre-back Kader Mangane was completed, according to reports.

Mangane, 29, is a 6'5 full Senegalese international who is believed to be on the verge of completing a loan move from Al-Hilal.

The former Rennes defender joined the Saudi Arabian side last summer but is set to join the Black Cats on-loan after club president Prince Abdulrahman announced an offer had been received: 'We received the official bid from Sunderland for Mangane.'

Born in Dakar, Mangane has played in Switzerland and Senegal as well as the French Ligue 1, and made his professional debut with Senegalese club US Rail.

He then moved to Neuchatel Xamax before playing for Young Boys, Lens and Rennes.

Mangane is currently part of Senegal's African Cup of Nations squad.

Another man being heavily linked with a move to the Stadium of Light is Swansea City striker, Danny Graham.

The 27 year-old forward has fallen out of favour at the Liberty Stadium and has been linked with a return to the North East.

Graham, born in Gateshead, came through Middlesbrough's youth set-up before turning out for Carlisle United and Watford with distinction.

In 2011 the 5'11 hitman moved to South Wales, bagging 12 Premier League goals in 36 appearances for Brendan Rodgers' side.

One final rumour surrounds the potential departure of David Vaughan.

The 29 year-old midfielder is being linked with a loan move to N.Power Championship side Crystal Palace after finding first-team opportunities hard to come by this term.

Vaughan has made 10 appearances for the Lads this season, with each of those coming from the substitutes bench.

Indeed, the 32-cap Welsh international has made just 15 starts since signing on a free transfer from Blackpool in the summer of 2011.
