RUNNING OUT OF TIME

The winter transfer window is now closed. That doesn't mean we can't look forward to this summer. Find out who's going where at the Rumor Mill.

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has confirmed he is close to landing Argentinian striker Ignacio Scocco.

The Internacional frontman is expected on Wearside to undergo a medical during the next 24 hours or so after the two clubs agreed a fee.

Asked on Tuesday afternoon if the deal was likely to go through, Poyet said: "I hope so. It's not done, but we are very, very close."

Scocco would become the third Argentinian to complete a move to the Stadium of Light this month, following in the footsteps of keeper Oscar Ustari and defender Santiago Vergini, who both made debuts in Saturday's 1-0 FA Cup fourth-round victory over Skrill Premier outfit Kidderminster.
