Sunderland are said to be interested in Peterborough’s Jonson Clarke-Harris, although it could take a fee of around £6m to do a deal.

It’s no secret that the Black Cats are on the lookout for a new striker this month and TalkSPORT reporter Alex Crook has suggested that the 27-year-old Posh man is on their radar.
Clarke-Harris was outstanding for Darren Ferguson’s men last season as they won promotion from the third tier, scoring 31 goals.
Therefore, he would be proven for Sunderland if the deal happened, however there would be concerns that he has failed to adapt to life in the Championship, with the former Rotherham man having just four goals to his name in the current campaign.
Have any of these 30 ex-Sunderland players ever played abroad?
With that in mind, it’s fair to say that the majority of fans are not at all happy with the prospect of paying such a fee for Clarke-Harris, with many not convinced Sunderland would spend such an amount on a single player anyway.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the news from Twitter…
Re Jonson Clarke Harris. 1. He won't be dropping down a league.
2. He's worth £2m-£3m max. Talk of £6m 🤯 Ridiculous valuation. Total non story him being linked with Sunderland #safc

I can see Burnley paying £15 plus mill for Stewart and we buy Jonson Clarke-Harris for 6 mill #SAFC

Won't happen. And certainly not at that ridiculous price. Move on. #SAFC

Considering we haven’t spend £6 million in over 3 seasons I can’t see it. We still have a clown car full n the board remember

Not a chance, seen him a few times, league 1 player at best and that sort of money absolutely staggering

We don’t have £6 never mind 6 million
