Bruce lines up Turner deal

Sunderland manager Steve Bruce has confirmed the Wearside club are interested in signing Hull City defender Michael Turner.

The £6m-rated centre-back was a target for Liverpool earlier in the summer but manager Rafa Benitez refused to meet the asking price. However, Sunderland appear ready to meet Hull's valuation of the 25-year-old.

Bruce said: "It is difficult to talk about individual players. We have registered an interest in the boy [Turner], but that's as far as it's gone as I am aware at the moment."

The Black Cats are still searching for a centre-back after failing to land Richard Dunne from Manchester City and Sylvain Distin from Portsmouth.

Lyon defender John Mensah is poised to bolster Sunderland's ranks after agreeing a season-long loan, but the Ghana international is still waiting for a work permit.

Bruce said: "We are further along with it and we don't envisage a problem. We are just waiting on the British Embassy in Paris to stamp his visa and once he gets his visa he can get into the country."
