Sunderland v Bournemouth: Latest team news

Have your say

Dame N’Doye could be handed a Sunderland debut in Saturday’s Barclays Premier League clash with Bournemouth.

The 30-year-old striker, who has joined the club on loan from Trabzonspor for the rest of the season, has received his international clearance and will be in the squad - and could be involved, with Steven Fletcher reporting illness on Thursday.

Full-back DeAndre Yedlin returns after being ineligible for last weekend’s trip to parent club Tottenham, but goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon and striker Danny Graham left for Watford and Blackburn respectively earlier this week, while defender Younes Kaboul (hamstring) and midfielder Sebastian Larsson (knee) are still out.

Provisional squad: Pickford, Mannone, Van Aanholt, Yedlin, O’Shea, Jones, Coates, Kirchhoff, Beadling, Cattermole, Rodwell, Lens, Borini, M’Vila, Toivonen, Johnson, Watmore, Fletcher, Defoe, N’Doye.
