Sunderland defender John O'Shea expects big things from Emanuele Giaccherini.
The former Juventus winger has impressed in training.
Oâ€™Shea told the Sunday Mirror: â€œWe are coming along nicely as a squad.
â€œPositive signs are there. (Emanuele) Giaccherini looks a real talent, even though he isnâ€™t fully fit yet, Cabral looks like he can be a top player in the Premier League and, with Wes Brown coming back after injury, thatâ€™s like signing a new player.
â€œThere was a lot of Âupheaval last season and at times we were making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
â€œBut it feels more settled now, even with all the new players that have come in over the summer, and thereâ€™s a great spirit around the place.
