Sunderland wait to pounce for Defoe
Sunderland are waiting to make a move for Jermain Defoe.
Martin O’Neill is eager to land a new striker ahead of the coming season, but has been left frustrated in his quest to take Scotland international Steven Fletcher.
It is believed Wolverhampton Wanderers want as much as £15million for their star player, so the Black Cats have now turned their attention to Defoe
O’Neill feels he will have a decent chance of signing the 29-year-old for £10million, but he is waiting for Tottenham Hotspur to sign a replacement first.
And with Manchester City’s Emmanuel Adebayor expected to join Spurs in the coming days, the Sunderland boss could move for the England international this week.
