Sunderland dealt potential transfer blow as Celtic told to 'take a chance' on Black Cats man
Sunderland are in the process of finalising their summer transfer plans.
And there has been plenty of speculation over the past few weeks ahead of the Black Cats’ fourth straight season in League One.
In recent days it has been said that Sheffield Wednesday are set to enter the race for Sunderland-linked Scott Tanser.
Meanwhile, former Black Cat Nicklas Bendtner has retired from football aged 33.
Here, though, we take a look at the latest transfer news from Sunderland and around League One:
Kevin Phillips has stated that Sunderland will be “fighting tooth and nail” to keep Elliot Embleton at the club this summer.
Phillips also added: “The other question is, does Embleton want to stay? I am sure Blackpool will be interested in signing him and he might be tempted to go and play in the Championship. I really hope they keep him though.” (Football Insider)
Sunderland have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Crewe Alexandra winger Owen Dale. It is said that Wycombe Wanderers have made a move for the player. (Alan Nixon – personal Twitter)
Gabby Agbonlahor has told Celtic to give Sunderland striker Charlie Wyke a "chance".
The striker is out of contract this summer but has been offered fresh terms at the Stadium of Light.
Agbonlahor said: “If he can do that in League One then I reckon it’s worth giving him a chance. They need a bit of a change there so it’s worth giving him a chance.” (Football Insider)
