The 23-year-old central defender has been training with the Black Cats, and he has already played in a fixture behind closed doors.

Sunzu was forced out of the action with a slight knee injury, while he will also head out on international duty for a World Cup qualifier in Lesotho.

Premier League rivals Reading pulled out of the race for Sunzu in January due to a contract dispute with TP Mazembe.

The Congolese club eventually resolved that Sunzu was under contract until 2015, rather than being a free agent, but Mazembe have given the player permission to train with Sunderland.

O'Neill told the Sunderland Echo: "He played a little game the other day, but he had a swollen knee before he came here and he had to come off in the game.

"That will stop him training for a week at most. And then he'll be going away to play during the international break so we'll monitor him during that game.

"But I haven't seen enough of him yet to make a decision on him."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
