O’Nien is one of four players Sunderland have offered a new deal, with the ex-Wycombe man soon-to-be-out-of-contract this summer.

Charlie Wyke, Aiden McGeady and Denver Hume have also been offered new terms.

Preston had been credited with a strong interest in O’Nien this week, however, that has been played down.
