Sunderland to make sensational move for former Gunners captain?

Sunderland manager Roy Keane has today failed to rule out a January move for Inter Milan midfielder Patrick Vieira. The former French international has struggled for first team football at the San Siro since joining from Juventus two years ago.

The former Arsenal captain, Vieira, had many an epic midfield battle with Black Cats boss Roy Keane during the Irishman's days at Old Trafford. It would be an understatement to say that Keane and Vieira didn't particularly like each other which makes this link so unbelievable.

I personally believe that Vieira was and still is a quality player and I think he would be a magnificent signing for a club like Sunderland. He is now 32-years old however I feel he could prove to be an excellent acquisition for Sunderland, although I do think Vieira may be reluctant to re-ignite the pair's relationship at the Stadium of Light.
