Sunderland to make £9m bid for Wigan star

The Daily Mirror reports that Bruce is keen to bring in N’Zogbia as well as make the signing of five loan stars permanent.

Bruce is keen for permanent deals for Sulley Muntari, Ahmed Elmohamady, Nedum Onuoha, John Mensah and Danny Welbeck.

Bruce will struggle to sign Welbeck as Manchester United have insisted that they have no plans of letting the youngster leave on a permanent deal.
