SUNDERLAND have agreed a fee with Arsenal for goalkeeper Vito Mannone, according to reports today.

The Black Cats have been in the market for a new stopper after Simon Mignolet’s £11million departure to Liverpool earlier this week.

Italian Mannone, who has a year left on his contract at the Emirates, has been linked with Sunderland several times over recent weeks and the Black Cats are now mooted to have made that interest concrete.

The 25-year-old has made 15 appearances since joining Arsenal at 17 and spent time on loan in the Championship with Hull City during 2010-11 and 2011-12.
