Di Canio to begin Sunderland rebuilding job with Roberge signing

May 2, 2013 7:01:00 AM

The Italian has made an encouraging start to life on Wearside and is already making plans for the summer with the Maritimo defender set to sign on a free transfer
EXCLUSIVE
By Duncan Castles

Paolo Di Canio has initiated his planned overhaul of Sunderland's playing resources by setting up a close-season transfer of Maritimo centre-back Valentin Roberge.

The 25-year-old has agreed to move to the Premier League side under freedom of contract when his current deal with the Portuguese club expires at the end of the season.


TRANSFER TALK
11/10Sunderland are 11/10 with Coral to finish above Newcastle
Fast over the ground and comfortable carrying the ball out of defence, Roberge has spent three seasons in Portugal's Primeira Liga with Maritimo as a first-choice centre-back.

The defender spent his teenage years with Guingamp and Paris Saint-Germain before a two-season spell in Greece with Aris, yet is relatively unknown in his native country.

Controversially employed as a replacement for Martin O'Neill, Di Canio has eased Sunderland's relegation concerns by winning two of his four Premier League fixtures since his appointment on March 31.

With three fixtures remaining, his new club holds a five-point lead over 18th-placed Wigan and a substantial goal-difference advantage over Aston Villa and Newcastle.

As a condition of taking over at Sunderland, the Italian sought, and was granted, full control over the club's senior player recruitment.

Just what we need, a injury prone defender...


Rennes defender Onyekachi Apam admits he dreams a making the move to the Premier League in the summer.Premier League trio Everton, West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland have all been linked with the Nigeria international in the past.The 26-year-old has played all of his club football in France, first with Nice before moving to Rennes in the summer of 2010.A serious knee injury meant he made just one appearance in his first 18 months at the Route de Lorient and made just 13 outings in total last season.Injuries have again restricted him to just nine appearances so far this campaign, with his latest setback a niggling ankle injury.Despite his fitness worries Apam, who has seven international caps, is hopeful of returning to action before the end of the season and has already set his sights on securing a move to England."I am injured at the moment but hopefully I can play the next three games," he said. "I have always dreamt of playing in England and testing myself against the best strikers in the world."Hopefully I will get that chance in the summer."Rennes is a great club, they had so many injuries this year but they will be fine next season with or without me.

Basel's highly-rated centre-back Aleksandar Dragovic his hinted at a move to the Premier League.The 22-year-old Austrian has caught the eye of both Everton and Southampton, who are reportedly tracking his progress as they look to bolster their defensive cover for next season.Dragovic wants to follow in the footsteps of fellow countryman and international team-mate Andi Weimann who has enjoyed a successful spell at Aston Villa."I regular speak to Andreas, who has told me a lot about how much he enjoys playing in England," Dragovic told The Sun."Its competition at the highest level, which is what I'm looking for."The fans are fantastic, and the clubs command a lot of respect around the world."Basel are well aware of the interest shown in Dragovic but have stated that teams from England 'face a tough fight' for his signature, according to sporting director Georg Heitz.Arsenal and Sunderland are also said to be keeping a close eye on his situation.

Black Cats knocked back after audacious bid.

Sunderland had an amazing bid for £50 million rated Napoli star Edinson Cavani turnd down, according to The Express.


The club’s new director of football, Roberto De Fanti, had targeted the Uruguayan hitman as a top target and tried to lure him to the Stadium of Light after Paolo Di Canio had ordered a shake up of the club’s scouting network following the sacking of chief scout Bryan ‘pop’ Robson.

Chairman Ellis Short has stated that he will back Di Canio with cash in the transfer market this summer to ensure the club avoid a repeat of this season and steer clear of the drop zone.

However, the negotiations were ended quickly by the player’s agent when they were told that Cavani had no interest in joining Sunderland and had much more appealing offers on the table should he decide to move on.

Both Manchester City and PSG are said to be in the driving seat to land Serie A’s top scorer with City reportedly offering Edin Dzeko in part exchange.

It was thought that PSG had agreed a deal to sign him two weeks ago, but that rumour was quickly put to be by the club

I'm all for ambition but this just makes us a laughing stock, if true

Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio insists that he is not even thinking about transfer targets for this summer, despite being linked with a host of names.

With two games remaining the Black Cats have yet to secure their Premier League status, but that has not stopped speculation.The club have also parted company with chief scout Bryan 'Pop' Robson ahead of installing someone to work with Di Canio.Lazio defender Modibo Diakite, Maritimo stopper Valentin Roberge and Barcelona's Sergi Gomez are amongst the names to have been linked with the Wearside outfit in recent weeks.

But Di Canio insisted: "I haven't thought about transfers yet - absolutely nothing."Everything can change at the moment, you can feel safe and then - boom - you can be hit like a hammer."So we have to make sure that we are safe first - I can't think about transfers until then."

Stoke City and Sunderland are battling for Croatian international left-back Ivan Strinic, according to his agent.The 25-year-old is currently with Ukrainian outfit Dnipro - but is being tipped to leave this summer.Italian champions Juventus are being strongly linked, but the player's agent admits that at the moment it is Stoke and Sunderland leading the race."I read in newspapers that Juventus want Strinic but the truth is that nobody from that club talked with me about it," his agent Tonci Martic told 24sata."Some time ago we did but not only about Strinic. For now the most interested clubs come from the Premier League in England."Dnipro wants €9million, Stoke City and Sunderland offers little less than that though at the moment."Martic stated earlier this month that Sunderland's offer had been rejected by Dnipro.Transfer

After recently being linked with Bosman moves for Modibo Diakite and Valentin Roberge, Sunderland have now been linked with another out-of-contract player, Penafiel's Diogo Viana.The Gazzetta Dello Sport claimed earlier in the week that the player had already agreed to move to Sunderland, as long as the North East club avoided relegation, with Bologna and Palermo cheering against Sunderland due to their interest in the Penafeil winger.In an interview with transfermarketweb.com(TMW), an agent claiming to represent Viana claimed;We are weighing up a few choices, anything might happen. Diogo's has a playing style similar to Simao and Quaresma, but he's more mild-tempered than the latter. I'm currently in Germany, in order to evaluate local opportunities, while Blackburn Rovers are keen on him. At the time no offer came from Italy. But playing for Bologna in Serie A would be great. We are even ready to weigh up an offer coming from a relegated Palermo.Viana was quick to deny those reports, with the player himself issuing a statement to TMW denying that Paulo Rodrigues was his agent and playing down interest in him from Blackburn, Palermo and Bologna;I respect the immense Palermo, Bologna and Blackburn, but I've have not received any contact from them. Anzhi is the only club that have showed serious interest, but it's still to be determined.Despite the player himself not mentioning Sunderland, a report in the respected Portuguese newspaper Record today claimed the player is indeed in the process of a move to Paolo Di Canio's side. A move that, if successful, would be completed at the end of the season.Diogo Viana is a 23-year-old former Portugal under-21 winger, who started his career at Portuguese giants Sporting Lisbon before signing for Porto as a makeweight in a deal that took former Spurs striker Helder Postiga in the opposite direction.Viana failed to make the breakthrough at Porto and, despite a couple of short Cup appearances and relatively successful loan spells at Eredivise side VVV-Venlo and C.D.Aves of the Spanish Segunda Division, joined Segunda Liga side Penafiel in 2011.The skilful winger has made 57 appearances for Penafiel, with 29 of them coming this season and despite only finding the back of the net on four occasions is believed to have had a very good season.
