Sunderland are closing in on a deal for Wolves striker Steven Fletcher.

The Scot has been a top target for Sunderland since Wolves' relegation.

The Journal says the deal to bring Fletcher to Wearside is 75 per cent done and while he won't be a name to get the fans dizzy with excitement, the striker has still scored 36 Premier League goals for two poor sides, Burnley and Wolves, over three seasons.
