Sunderland keen on Orban - agent

The agent of Lucas Orban has claimed Sunderland are in talks to sign his client.

Orban, 24, began his career at River Plate before moving to Tigre, initially on loan, in 2011. With his agent, Filippo Colasanto, stating talks had taken place with Sunderland’s new director of football Roberto De Fanti, ESPN understands that a deal has been agreed between the two clubs, and that it is now up to the player to decide his future.

“Sunderland are interested in signing the player,” Colasanto told the Sunderland Echo. “I have spoken with the new director, De Fanti. He called me to get some information about the Orban situation to start negotiations. I know that Sunderland made an approach to Tigre saying that they want to sign him and they are in a position to come to an agreement. We know it is a strong possibility to go and play in England. I am waiting on the decision of the player."

Although interest in Orban is said to be high, Colasanto said that the chance to play in the Premier League would greatly appeal to his client. Harbouring international ambitions, his agent also feels that the opportunity could enhance his reputation with Argentina coach Alejandro Sabella ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

However, Sunderland will need to be patient in their pursuit, as Colasanto explained that a decision on Orban's future will come after his current campaign with Tigre has finished.

“There are two or three matches to go (in the Argentine league) and at the moment, he wants to wait until the end of the season to make a decision,” Colasanto said.

"There are three or four other clubs interested in him. He has had some offers from Brazil, two or three from Spain and one from France. But of course, he would be interested in going to the Premier League. Every player that has that opportunity is. And another factor is it would be the season before the World Cup.

“It could be an opportunity for him to go and play in a big league, and the Premier League is the best in the world. Lucas Orban is a very good player for the type who are successful in England too. He has a good heart, is tall and powerful and is very good at heading.”
