THE rumour mill has gone into overdrive with every player and his mother being linked with a move to Sunderland.

BBC Sport are claiming Asamoah Gyan has handed in a transfer request at the Stadium of Light with clubs from Turkey interested, while Celtic forward Georgios Samaras is said to be on Steve Bruce’s radar.

Other potential striking targets, Peter Crouch and Roman Pavlyuchenko, look set to stay at Tottenham as no firm bids have been lodged for either player at this stage.

German international Patrick Helmes also appears to be staying put after resolving his future with Bundesliga club Wolfsburg.

One deal that does appear to be close to completion is Anton Ferdinand’s £4m move to QPR, with the player confirming via Twitter that he has arrived in London for a medical.
