Sunderland boss Steve Bruce is confident completing a deal for Liverpool striker David Ngog.

Ngog was offered to the Black Cats as part of the deal that saw Jordan Henderson move to Anfield earlier this month but in the end the Frenchman stayed at Anfield for the time being.

However, Steve Bruce is keen on landing the 22-year-old and hopes to wrap up the deal in the next seven days.

Ngog has been deemed surplus to requirements at Liverpool by boss Kenny Dalglish and will be allowed to move on in a deal that is set to be worth around £5million.
