Sunderland have been linked with a loan move for former Newcastle United left-back Jose Enrique, who is heading for the Liverpool exit.

The Black Cats have already made one raid on Anfield this week after completing a £7.75million move for Fabio Borini, and they made an approach for another Liverpool player yesterday after enquiring about centre-half Tiago Ilori on loan.

Ilori rejected the chance to join Sunderland, but reports have indicated that the Black Cats are also interested in out-of-favour left-back Enrique.

Like Borini, Enrique has not been training with Liverpool’s first-team squad this summer and has no future at Anfield.

The 30-year-old had been expected to join West Brom, with reports earlier today that he was due to travel to the Hawthorns to discuss personal terms and undergo a medical.

But Sunderland have been in the market for a new left-back, with Patrick van Aanholt struggling in the opening few games of the campaign.
