Sunderland are set to miss out on Manchester City striker John Guidetti.

The Independent says Sunderland are understood to be interested in Guidetti, whose mystery illness rendered him unfit for most of last season.

City do rate him and appear to want to keep him. A loan deal - similar to the one in which he flourished for Feyenoord in 2011/12 - is one possibility, though the priority is simply to get the player fit.
