Sunderland Willing to Sell Star Man to Swansea


According to reports coming from The Northern Echo, Sunderland are willing to let their striker Steven Fletcher leave for Premier League rivals Swansea City.


Fletcher has emerged as a potential target for Garry Monk, as he looks to put the finishing touches to his squad ready for the new Premier League campaign. The Black Cats are willing to let their striker move to the Liberty Stadium for a cut-price fee of just £4m.

According to the Sunderland news outlet, Dick Advocaat will allow his Scottish forward to leave now to save him going on a free when his contract expires next summer.

The Scotland international has scored 19 goals in 78 Premier League outings since arriving at the Stadium of Light from Wolves in August 2012.

Monk’s side have already completed the signings of Andre Ayew, Franck Tabanou, Kristoffer Nordfeldt and Eder this summer, and they are rumoured to be keen on adding Fletcher to their ranks.

The Swans are also reportedly showing interest in Tottenham Hotspur’s Emmanuel Adebayor and Paris Saint-Germain’s striker Jean-Christophe Bahebeck.
