The centre-half is on his way out after nine years at Manchester City as Eastlands manager Mark Hughes wants to shake up his squad for next's season's trophy hunt.

Dunne, 29, joined City after being released from Everton and established himself as one of the toughest defenders in the game.

Captain Sunderland boss Ricky Sbragia believes Dunne can add to the Black Cats' spirit and is understood to even be ready to make Dunne his captain.
