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.

  • Well done guys I think you’ve got a real gem in your hands here. Now can you do us a favour and finalise the Gibson and Brown transfers! 😉
