SUNDERLAND have been linked with a January move for Ajax attacking midfielder Lasse Schone.

Danish international Schone is out-of-contract at the end of the season and reports today have indicated that Sunderland are contemplating a cut-price move for the 28-year-old in the upcoming transfer window.

Schone, who has netted 21 goals in 70 appearances for Ajax, has suggested that he is unlikely to pen a new deal in Holland, with AC Milan also linked.

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet was keen to further boost his central midfield ranks in the summer - after the captures of Jack Rodwell and Jordi Gomez - with a loan move for Manchester City’s Bruno Zuculini falling through.
