The Republic of Ireland defender has missed the last four games with a shoulder injury, but resumed training late last week and is in contention to start the first leg at the Stadium of Light.

O'Shea's back four colleagues Valentin Roberge and Modibo Diakite have recovered from the knocks which kept them out of Sunday's 3-1 FA Cup third round victory over Carlisle, but goalkeeper Keiren Westwood (shoulder) and defender Carlos Cuellar (hip) remain on the sidelines.

Provisional squad: Mannone, Pickford, Celustka, Dossena, Alonso, Bardsley, O'Shea, Brown, Diakite, Roberge, Cattermole, Cabral, Gardner, Ki, Giaccherini, Johnson, Larsson, Ba, Karlsson, Mavrias, Colback, Fletcher, Altidore, Borini.
