TRANSFER RUMOURS: Sunderland to land £3million Ricardo Fuller from Stoke

Have your say

THE sale of Darren Bent looks set to spark a transfer merry-go-round with Sunderland reportedly close to landing Ricardo Fuller from Stoke City.

Reports from the Potteries today say the deal could be imminent for a fee in the region of £3million.

That’s because Stoke are closing in on Aston Villa’s John Carew, another of Sunderland’s initial targets after Bent was sold to Villa for £24m this week.

That influx of cash - and Sunderland’s willingness to spend some of it - could begin a domino effect of transfers within the Barclays Premier League.
