John O´Shea Moves To Sunderland
Reportedly, Manchester United defender John O´Shea moves to Sunderland for a transfer fee in the region of £3 million and has agreed a deal which will keep him at the Stadium of Light until summer 2015. The Republic of Ireland international, who agreed professional terms with Manchester United at the start of the 1998–99 campaign, becomes ambitious manager Steve Bruce´s eighth permanent senior signing this summer.
John O´Shea made his senior debut for Manchester United in a heavy 3–0 defeat against Aston Villa at Villa Park in the Football League Cup in October 1999. After loan spells with Bournemouth and Belgian side Royal Antwerp, the multifunctional footballer established himself in the Manchester United first team during the 2002-03 campaign and proceeded to make a total of 393 appearances for the club. A towering player in every sense of the word, John O´Shea debuted for his native country when he came on as a substitute in an international friendly game against Croatia at Lansdowne Road in August 2001.
