Sunderland Football Club are preparing an offer for Keith Andrews.
The Republic of Ireland international ended last season at West Bromwich Albion, who have so far failed to tie him to a new contract at the Hawthorns.
Andrews is now a free agent ahead of next season, and although Bolton Wanderers are keen, he could have an option to remain in the Premier League.
It is believed Martin O’Neill wants the 31-year-old midfielder at the Stadium of Light, and the Black Cats are currently drawing up an offer to entice him to Wearside.
