Black Cats watch­ing £2m Mar­cus

The Football League Paper - - FRONT PAGE - By Stu­art Ham­monds

PREMIER LEAGUE strug­glers Sun­der­land are among a pack of clubs eye­ing up Peterborough’s £2m-rated winger Mar­cus Mad­di­son.

The Black Cats have been reg­u­lar visi­tors to watch the ex-New­cas­tle trainee plucked from Gateshead last Au­gust.

Mad­di­son, 21, had found the net four times in as many games be­fore draw­ing a blank in yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Gilling­ham.

Sun­der­land’s top-flight ri­vals Bournemouth, Nor­wich and Le­ices­ter are also keen and Posh have al­ready paid £300,000 to the Heed, who have a sell-on clause, so will be look­ing for at least £2m.

Posh di­rec­tor of football Barry Fry said: “Mar­cus scores spec­tac­u­lar goals and he’ll be the next player we’ve taken from Non-League to go into the Premier.

“If some­one of­fers enough money be­fore Tues­day, then he’ll go. If they don’t, we’ll hang onto him un­til Jan­uary and hope he car­ries on scor­ing so we get more.”

TAR­GET: Mar­cus Mad­di­son
