Sunderland post Atkins to check on Standard Liege fullback Sebastien Pocognoli

Sunderland boss Steve Bruce has posted coach Ian Atkins to Belgium to check on potential signings.

The Journal says Sunderland are considering a bid for Standard Liege left-back Sébastien Pocognoli, a 22-year-old attacking wing-back who has made four appearances for the Belgian national side.

Pocognoli, who left AZ in January for his home country, impressed for Liege in their Europa Cup campaign and although he is not a priority target for boss Steve Bruce, he is on a long list of targets.
