Scanning the world of football for today’s round-up, it seems Vilhena will be a man in demand this summer.

The Feyenoord midfielder was rumoured to be a target for Sunderland in January, while Southampton and Leicester have also been linked.

Sam Allardyce is already putting plans in place for summer recruitment, despite Sunderland not knowing what division they’ll be playing in, and the highly-rated Vilhena is on his radar.
