Former Atletico Madrid fullback Giourkas Seitaridis is in the sights of Sunderland.

The Daily Mail says Sunderland are weighing up a move for Greece international Seitaridis.

The vastly experienced 29-year-old is available for around £1million after Panathinaikos gave him the okay to leave.

He joined just over a year ago from Atletico Madrid but a spate of injuries spoiled his return to Greece.

Despite returning to full fitness and regaining a place in the side he has decided to leave.
