[AMERICANS ABROAD] Jozy Altidore should get a second crack at the English Premier League as his move from Dutch club AZ to Sunderland is expected to be completed at the beginning of the week.

ESPN FC reported that the clubs had agreed on a deal and will be finalized on Monday when he takes a medical exam.

Altidore scored 31 goals for AZ last season, his best in five seasons in Europe, and helped it win the 2013 Dutch Cup.

He had played one season on loan from Villarreal to Hull City but scored only one goal in 28 EPL matches.

Sunderland's Black Cats have a strong following but they struggled in 2012-13, finishing just above the relegation zone in 17th place.

    I hope I'm wrong, but this has Hull City written all over it. Jozy actually was the third leading scorer for Hull with very limited minutes. If he'd been allowed to convert the several PKs he earned, he would have been the second leading scorer. But still, this move doesn't seem very promising to me. Sunderland finished 17th last year for a reason. This is their season to drop. Hope Jozy shows enough to move up the ladder yet again.

    Crossing fingers that he gets minutes required to establish himself.
