Ultimatum For Wickham.

Sunderland boss Gus Poyet has said that is getting close to the time that Connor Wickham must either sign a new deal with the club or move on.

The striker made a big impact when he came back to the club towards the end of last season and played a major part in getting Sunderland out of trouble at the bottom of the league.
