Blades eye Patterson

Sunderland goalkeeper Anthony Patterson is again attracting transfer interest ahead of the summer transfer window with Sheffield United now linked.

Fresh reports have hinted that the recently-relegated Blades are prepping an “ambitious” £8million bid for Sunderland’s number one.

Ian Poveda linked

Sunderland are reportedly one of several clubs interested in Leeds forward Ian Poveda.

The 24-year-old is set to become a free agent this summer, when his contract at Leeds expires, after making 10 Championship appearances on loan at Sheffield Wednesday during the second half of this season. Wednesday are keen to re-sign the Colombia international on a permanent deal, with other Championship clubs said to be interested.

Chris Rigg latest

Sunderland’s teenage sensation Chris Rigg has once again been linked with a move away from the Stadium of Light.

A report from The Sun has stated that Rigg will be in the “shop window” with England under-17s this month. The Sun adds that German giants Both Leverkusen and Dortmund “fancy” the teenager, who Manchester United looked at last summer.

Chris Willock attracting interest

The Black Cats have been linked with a summer move for Chris Willock, whose contract at QPR expires this coming June.

However, Championship rivals Norwich City are also said to have joined the race to sign the former Arsenal man. The Canaries made it into the play-offs at the end of the regular season and face Leeds United in a semi-final first-leg at Carrow Road on Sunday evening.

Reports state that Norwich could make a move for Willock regardless of whether or not they earn promotion this season. Willock, 26, was voted QPR’s Player of the Year at the end of the 2021-2022 campaign and is also the brother of Newcastle United man Joe Willock.
