According to british The Guardian, Sunderland are close to securing the signature of Daniel Bessa on a season-long loan from Inter. The 20-year-old attacking midfielder appears to be heading for Wearside but Inter have so far declined Paolo Di Canio’s bids to buy two more of their players, Alfred Duncan, the young Ghana midfielder dubbed “the new Michael Essien”, and Ibrahima Mbaye, a Senegalese centre-half.
