[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.
