Sunderland AFC transfer rumours: Striker receives contract offers from Celtic, Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough
The transfer window opened today with plenty of chatter from around the division.
The Sunderland Echo has spoken exclusively to Grant Leadbitter in two parts as he prepares to leave his boyhood club for the second time.
Oxford United manager Karl Robinson has claimed that some League One teams are offering wages of up to £10,000 per week during the summer transfer window.
And Peterborough United chief Darragh MacAnthony has described Jonson Clarke-Harris as ‘comfortably the best player in League One’ and joked he would have scored 50 goals if he played for Sunderland.
Here, though, we take you through the latest news you may have missed today in our daily round-up:
Steve Howey delivers transfer verdict
Steve Howey has suggested that Sunderland will have already looked at players they want to sign this summer.
Speaking to Football League World, Howey said: “You’ve got to have the right players in the right positions. It starts with Johnson and his staff recruiting the right players.
“I’m pretty sure they would have, like all the managers, looked at players before the end of the season and thought about what happens if we go up or what happens if we stay down? And then we take it from there.”
Sunderland striker has received offers from multiple clubs
Charlie Wyke has received alternative offers amid links to Celtic, Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough, according to reports.
The Sunderland striker is currently weighing up a contract extension at the Stadium of Light.
Wyke found the net 31 times in all competitions for the Wearsiders last term.
