Reading fullback Nicky Shorey will have a choice of Premiership clubs this week.
The Sun says Sunderland and Aston Villa have had bids accepted for Shorey.
The £4.5million-rated star has been hoping for a move following the Royals' relegation from the top flight.
Black Cats boss Roy Keane will try to tempt him north while Shorey could link up with old Reading team-mate Steve Sidwell at Villa.
