Sunderland closing in on third deal, Leeds United keeper and striker search latest plus an update on Brendan Galloway's future
Sunderland are edging closer to a January deal for a goalkeeper, with Andy Lonergan of Leeds United in the frame to be added before Wednesday night's deadline.
But it's looking like they will have to wait for the Whites to sign a replacement before a deal is sanctioned allowing Lonergan to join.
Meanwhile, the Black Cats have pulled the plug on a deal for Chris Martin.
The Scotland international had looked to be coming in on loan, but Chris Coleman has revealed he's not about to make the same mistakes of previous manager's at SoL.
"It's the opposite of the type of player we are trying to attract in terms of mentality, so that completely fell flat. We don't want to make the same mistakes," he said.
Elsewhere, Brendan Galloway is reportedly keen to end his Sunderland stay.
The defender is on loan from Everton and according to Sky Sports wants to return to his parent club before heading out elsewhere.
