Meanwhile, Sunderland are in talks over a possible loan move for Sheffield United Daniel Jebbison.

The 18-year-old was understood to be at the Stadium of Light on Friday night as Sunderland played their final pre-season friendly against Hull City.

A deal is not though to be imminent, with a number of clubs interested in the talented 18-year-old.
