Yesterday Sunderland completed the signing of goalkeeper Mika from Portuguese side Boavista, but reports in the Italian media suggest they could sign another goalkeeper.
Former Chelsea goalkeeper Marco Amelia is reportedly on trial at Sunderland, after his contract expired with the London club.
According to Italian website Gazzamercato, David Moyes is set to decide in the next 48 hours if he wants to sign the Italian goalkeeper.
Sunderland were forced to look for a goalkeeper after long term injury to Vito Mannone, but the arrival of Mika could make things complicated for Amelia.
Moyes also has Jordan Pickford and Maksymilian Stryjek as back-up goalkeepers, so it’d be interesting to see if he’d want to sign a fifth goalkeeper.
Amelia has played for several clubs in Italy, and has also represented the Italian national team 9 times.
There’s every likelihood that Amelia was being kept on a string in case the Mika deal failed, and now Moyes has a problem over what to tell him.
