Just a day after the 21-year-old's current employers Velez Sarsfield claimed the deal would go through following the Black Cats' return from Hong Kong, where they are playing in the Barclays Asia Trophy, the Italian revealed the deal had been put on hold because of a problem revealed by a medical on Wearside last week.

Di Canio told the Sunderland Echo in Hong Kong: "At the moment, there is no chance for Gino Peruzzi to join us."
