Sunderland AFC transfer news: Latest on ex-Liverpool forward Bobby Duncan, Marc McNulty future and Luca Connell reports
Sunderland are expected to be busy today with a couple of new signings heading to Wearside, with Bristol City striker Antoine Semenyo set for a loan move to Wearside.

“But Neil Lennon has suggested that any club taking him would be on loan, and I don't think that suits either Sunderland or the player.
“They certainly weren't working on that as of late last night.
“See what today brings..."
Clubs in the Premier League and the EFL have until 11pm tonight to make signings with the deadline midnight for Scottish clubs.
