Sunderland favourites for Hamburg defender Mancienne

Sunderland are eyeing Hamburg defender Michael Mancienne.

The Mirror says Mancienne, 26, wants to head home after a three-year stint in Germany with Hamburg.

And the Black Cats are the front-runners ahead of Stoke, Swansea, QPR and Championship-bound Fulham to seal a bargain £1million deal.

Sunderland's sporting director Lee Congerton plans on being reunited with Mancienne and has recommended the versatile defender to boss Gus Poyet.
