Sunderland manager Jack Ross has been willing to give younger players a chance this season.

Reports in France have claimed the Black Cats are one of the clubs who are interested in young midfielder Adam Boujamaa, who could be available at the end of the season.

France Football believe Sunderland and Blackburn are both monitoring the 20-year-old, who has been playing for Guingamp reserves this season.

The France-Moroccan midfielder is yet to sign his first professional deal, though, which could make him available for a small price.

After making five new signings in the January window, Jack Ross is in no desperate need to add to his squad.
