SUNDERLAND are closing in on a deal to keep Manchester United starlet Danny Welbeck at the Stadium of Light for a second season.

Reports today say that Man United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been happy with Welbeck’s progress on Wearside and is receptive to a second loan agreement.

That’s great news for SAFC and boss Steve Bruce, who would even love to sign the youngster permanently – something Ferguson has already ruled out.

Welbeck returned from injury to shine in Sunderland’s goalless draw at Arsenal the weekend before last and could be a key figure in what remains of the season.
