Sunderland won’t shy away from spending money in the transfer market this summer, according to reports from Sunderland Echo.
It’s been a steady start to the transfer window for Lee Johnson’s side but with Kyril Louis-Dreyfus in charge of the club it’s expected that the club may try to spend big as they look to secure promotion from League One.
It’s claimed that the Black Cats are looking to make the club more financially sustainable but as long as any arrivals offer good future value, Dreyfus won’t shy away from spending big on new faces.
Denver Hume’s contract
Sunderland are optimistic that the young full-back will pen a new deal at the club, according to a report from the Sunderland Echo.
Hume is facing an uncertain future with his contract at the club set to expire next week, meaning that he may have played his last game for the Black Cats.
However the report claims that there’s hope behind-the-scenes that the 22-year-old will extend his stay and add to the 76 appearances made for the club already in his young career.
Dion Sanderson latest
Sunderland have had an offer for the defender rejected by Wolves, according to reports from the Daily Mail.
The Black Cats are keen to sign the 21-year-old defender following a hugely successful loan spell at the Stadium Of Light where he established himself as a key first team player for Lee Johnson.
With a permanent move being pursued, it’s claimed that Wolves are holding out for a fee of £2million to get a deal done with the player entering the final year of his contract at Molineux.
