Responding to a claim on Twitter that Sunderland were way short of the valuations of all three players, Donald tweeted: "Absolute rubbish. 1 already accepted. 1 very minor adjustment and a second will be accepted. 3rd one waiting to hear but it is a very very good offer.

"Everyone seems to know we have placed offers on these!! To say they are a long way off the other clubs valuations is just wrong. We have made no offer on Sharp."
