Wickham Bid Accepted!

Wickham Bid Accepted!

It has broken today that Sunderland have had an offer of £13m accepted by Ipswich Town for wonder-kid Connor Wickham.

The talks are only at an early stage and other clubs are expected to join in the bidding war. Clubs like Liverpool, who Wickham supported as a young kid, Spurs and Arsenal are all watching this deal unfold very closely.

The deal is reported to be £5m up front and then the rest paid in instalments later and once certain targets have been reached by the young English striker.

Wickham would not get as many opportunities for a bigger club such as Liverpool and this is something he may consider when he decides his future.

He could play regularly for Sunderland and become a better prospect with Gyan to help support him during games.

Best off going to you guys, getting game time and allowing for better development before shifting him off for a hefty profit.

Steve Bruce Alert

As unlikely as it may seem, a couple of bookies have now changed their favourite for the Sunderland manager's job from David Moyes to Steve Bruce.

Ninth Sunderland Boss In Eight Years Being Sought.

With Sam Allardyce about to be named as the new England boss when a compensation package is worked out, it seems that not everyone is delighted by the up and coming appointment.
