The Spanish midfielder will officially complete his switch to the Stadium of Light on July 1, ending a five-year spell with the Latics.

Gomez originally moved to England from Espanyol in 2008, impressing on a loan spell at Swansea, and was quickly snapped up by Wigan.

During his stay at the DW Stadium, he helped the club to lift the FA Cup in 2013 and scored 11 goals in his last campaign at the club, earning the Player of the Year award.

But Gomez will return to the Premier League with Sunderland as manager Gus Poyet continues his summer strengthening.

Poyet has also completed a deal for full-back Billy Jones, who joins from West Brom.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
