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)

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)
