Sunderland fans will be glad to know they have signed another defensive reinforcement in the shape of Santiago Vergini on loan. Sunderland have conceded 36 goals - the third highest in the Premier League.
Part of their problem at the back has been that aside from John O'Shea, no Sunderland center back completed more than 10 Premier League games.
Sunderland will hope Vergini will finally make the position next to John O'Shea solid after the likes of Wes Brown, Carlos Cuellar, Modibo Diakite and Valentine Roberge have struggled to nail a permanent place in the first eleven.
At 25 years of age, Vergini has played for the Argentine giants Newell's Old Boys and Estudiantes. For Estudiantes, Vergini played his part in helping them win the Argentine league in 2013. He also won a cap for Argentina in 2012.
Standing at 6 ft 3 inches, Vergini certainly has height on his side when he jostles with Premier League attackers.
