Zambia defender Stoppila Sunzu is on the radar of Fulham.

The arrival of Paolo Di Canio at Sunderland has dashed Sunzu's hopes of joining the Black Cats, says the Daily Star Sunday.

Former boss Martin O'Neill was set to offer Sunzu, 23, a final trial but sources close to the player, who is rated at £4million, say he has now been told there is no chance of a move.

Fulham are aware of the situation and could make a summer bid for the centre-back.
