Gino Peruzzi: The Velez defender (l) vies for the ball with Chilean Deportes Iqu

Buenos Aires side Velez Sarsfield had said that the 21-year-old would fly to Wearside on Thursday to finalise his move but he will now not arrive in England until the weekend.

A statement on Velez's official website read: "Given the imminent transfer of Gino Peruzzi to Sunderland Association Football Club, finally next Sunday, July 14, both the player and the directors Julio Baldomar and Eduardo Ordonez will travel to England to complete initial contracts between the parties and thus close the sale."

The Black Cats are also closing in on Juventus midfielder Emanuele Giaccherini, with manager Antonio Conte having told reporters the Italy international is leaving to help ease the financial burden on the club.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
