Sunderland manager David Moyes is hoping Darron Gibson can help the Wearsiders stave off relegation.

The Black Cats are expected to complete deals for the 29-year-old Derry native and out-of-favour full-back Bryan Oviedo before the transfer window closes.

The Everton duo are believed to be in the process of undergoing medicals.

Moyes bought Gibson from Manchester United in 2012 and despite signing a new two-year deal last summer, Gibson will leave after being deemed surplus to requirements by Ronald Koeman.

Moyes has already taken former Toffees Steven Pienaar, Victor Anichebe and Joleon Lescott to the Stadium of Light.
