Sunderland are convinced they've won the race for Swansea City striker Danny Graham.

The Daily Mail says Sunderland are confident of seeing off a late challenge from QPR for Graham and believe they would have signed him by now but for a snag over Kenwyne Jones' proposed move to Swansea.

Martin O'Neill is convinced Graham would have been preparing for his debut by now but for Swansea and Stoke failing to reach an agreement over Jones.

Stoke rejected a Swansea request to take Jones on loan with a view to a permanent deal. They are now waiting for Liberty Stadium bosses to come back with an offer that meets their valuation.
