Black Cats keeper approaching return

The Italian has been out of the side since the summer with an elbow injury and he was replaced by the impressive Jordan Pickford but he, like Sebastian Larsson, is back in training and close to a return.

Fabio Borini (adductor) and Lee Cattermole (back) have been running again although they are still thought to be a way off a playing return.

“Seb and Vito have come back much quicker,” Moyes told the Echo.

“Vito has been doing an awful lot of goalkeeping work and diving. He is not far away.

“Borini has been running too so there are just signs that these boys are coming back and maybe getting closer to being ready.

“I think it as much down to their determination. They have shown great desire to get back quickly.

“Most of them are all back quicker than we originally thought.”
