Andy Cole is closing in on a move to Sunderland after having a reported medical yesterday.

Cole, who turns 36 in October, watched Sunderland's 3-0 loss at Wigan on Saturday, but manager Roy Keane would only say: "There might be news in the next few days on one or two transfers. Might Andy Cole be one of the signings? Possibly. I think Coley came as a fan to watch."
