SUNDERLAND are set to make their second signing of the summer today, with Scottish striker Chris Maguire due to undergo a medical at the Stadium of Light.

The Black Cats have agreed a deal with Bury for the 29-year-old, who will leave Gigg Lane in the wake of the Shakers’ relegation to League Two last season.

With personal terms already agreed, Maguire should be confirmed as a Sunderland player in the next 24 hours provided there are no unforeseen problems with his medical.

He will join Alim Ozturk on the list of Sunderland’s summer arrivals, with the Turkish centre-half having signed as a free agent last week.

Maguire started his career in the youth set-up of Aberdeen, and moved to England in 2011 when he joined Derby County.

He has had permanent spells at Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham and Oxford, and scored two goals in 13 League One starts for Bury last season.

Sunderland intend to sign two new strikers this summer, with Lyle Taylor also on their wanted list.

The Black Cats have held talks with Taylor, who has come to the end of his contract at AFC Wimbledon, and have tabled what they believe to be an attractive offer.

However, Bristol Rovers, Southend, Peterborough and Burton have all held talks with Taylor and his representatives, and the 28-year-old is still assessing his option before making a decision on his future.

At the other end of the field, Sunderland are confident of tying up a deal for Scotland goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin, who is leaving Hearts after his contract expired.

Sunderland have held contract talks with the 30-year-old, who has turned down offers from clubs in the Championship and Azerbaijani champions Qarabag in order to line up a move to the Stadium of Light.
