Done Deal : Sunderland and QPR bosses have agree on a deal with India rated player

What Blackburn, Sunderland and QPR bosses have said on transfers amid Danny Batth and Lynden Gooch interest

Sunderland could allow some of their experienced players to leave before the end of the transfer window.

Sunderland and their Championship rivals will be looking to strengthen in the final two weeks of the transfer window – while there could also be departures on Wearside.

Black Cats boss Tony Mowbray has admitted he expects Alex Pritchard to leave the club in the coming weeks, while there is also uncertainty over the futures of Danny Batth and Lynden Gooch.

All three players have just a year left on their Sunderland contracts and will have multiple suitors given their availability and Championship experience.

Blackburn have shown interest in Batth, 32, since the start of the summer, yet financial cuts have restricted the club’s spending this window.

Sunderland man Luke O’Nien is set to sign a new contract this week, as per Sunderland Nation.

During his time in the north east, O’Nien has played over 200 senior games for the Black Cats and has become a fan favourite among many.

The versatile man has played in nearly every position for Sunderland since joining and most recently has become a solid central defender in red and white.

His contract expires next summer though and given his influence on the team it was no surprise to see reports suggesting Sunderland had opened discussions earlier this summer.

Some fans have been quick to criticise him at times, but his performances so far this season have been promising and he is without doubt an important part of Sunderland’s success.

O’Nien is now one of the more experienced players in Sunderland’s dressing room and that also cannot be underappreciated given the way Sunderland’s recruitment is heading nowadays.

The 28-year-old will be seen as an influential member of the squad and so far this season he has taken the responsibilities of captain with Corry Evans absent through injury.

Sunderland got their season off the mark last weekend, but they are still yet to really hit the ground running. Up next is an away trip to Coventry City in what will prove to be a very tough test.
