Sources: Middlesbrough continue to explore the possibility of double Sunderland raid

Published

Middlesbrough continue to keep tabs on Denver Hume and Charlie Wyke as they weigh up whether to move for the out-of-contract Sunderland duo, a source has exclusively revealed to Football League World. 

Sunderland were beaten in the League One play-off semi-finals by Lincoln City last month, with Lee Johnson now preparing to lead the Black Cats into a fourth consecutive season in the third-tier.

The club’s retained list confirmed that Hume had been offered a new contract, whilst ongoing discussions were taking place with Wyke on the back of a 26-goal season.

As things stand, though, both are out of contract at the end of this month, with a source revealing to Football League World that Neil Warnock is a fan of defender, Hume, who has yet to make a decision on the contract Sunderland have offered.

Although not a like-for-like replacement for Dael Fry, the 22-year-old is a potential option to come in and bolster Boro’s ranks if they lose one of the EFL’s leading centre-backs this summer. It is our understanding that Brentford have made Fry a transfer target this summer, whilst other top-flight clubs have scouted the 23-year-old.

It’s also been explained to Football League World that Boro have an eye on Wyke as they look to revamp their attack after the departures of Ashley Fletcher and Britt Assombalonga.
