Key word being selling, not sold.
SUNDERLAND are close to completing a loan deal for Liverpool youngster Tony Gallacher.
The 22-year-old left-back is set to agree the terms of a season-long loan at the Stadium of Light, although the Black Cats are also understood to have been exploring the possibility of a permanent deal for the defender.
Sunderland have spent the opening stages of their pre-season programme without a recognised left-back, with Callum McFadzean having left as a free agent at the end of last season and Denver Hume still to decide whether to take up the Wearsiders’ offer of a new deal.
It is still hoped that Hume will agree to extend his time with the Black Cats, but whatever his final decision, it was always Johnson’s intention to add at least one more recognised left-back to the squad.
Gallacher, a Scotland Under-19 international, fits that bill, even if he will head to Wearside with only limited senior experience.
The Glaswegian progressed through Falkirk’s academy, and made his senior debut in the Scottish Championship, only for Liverpool to snap him up for a reported fee of £200,000 in January 2018.
His sole senior appearance for the Reds came in a League Cup defeat to Aston Villa in 2019, with Jurgen Klopp opting to name a shadow side with his senior side competing in the World Club Championship, although he has spent three months on loan at MLS side Toronto FC.
Man City - Liverpool - Fiorentina - Derby - Vejle Boldklub
Man City extended Carson's contract, Man Utd signed Heaton, Chelsea signing Bettinelli (Everton signed Begovic). Liverpool extended Adrian's contract. Guess we were too nice to take advantage of 3rd goalie's spot to boost the homegrown players quota. .
Chelsea are after Kounde apparently.
Very good signing that, fuckers
I've never really Seen enough of him to form an opinion but he's clearly highly rated.. shame
Rumours are we've submitted €41m for Saul Niguez and looking at Adama Troare at £30m. If we get those two, I would be happy. However, it would mean we have to offload two foreign players
It’s a shame his name isn’t Dooku.
Adama Traore can get to fuck.
do we have to offload them or can we just not register / submit them?
By not registering them we would be over a barrel by any prospective buyers.
meh, clear a path we want signings
Presuming both Adrian & Karius count in that total, it seems wasteful to have them on the books (overlooking how shit they are) versus competent home grown GKs.
'Sources and 'Friends'' say Klopp is not happy at FSG for not backing him with investment this summer.
Not much of a friend if they are chatting private conversations.
He’s looked really miserable in pre season..

I wouldn't blame him, and I wouldn't be surprised if he wasn't happy, but I read that story and it smacks of the "journalist" waffling on without really saying anything of any note, just to fill the column inches.
