Reports: Bruce Hints At Graham Interest

Chris Brunskill

Steve Bruce looks like he might be about to do Sunderland a favour by taking troubled striker Danny Graham off Paolo Di Canio's hands after he confirmed an interest in the North East native.

Following a pre-season clash with Ferriby, Hull City manager Steve Bruce has indicated his interest in signing Sunderland's Danny Graham.

The news came via David Burns, a Tigers commentator and BBC Humberside sports reporter;

Graham's move to Sunderland was semi-controversial in itself given his quite obvious Newcastle-supporting tendencies, however he did manage to put in his one great performance in a Sunderland shirt against his boyhood idols.

A lack of goals and an even more apparent lack of fitness have all contributed to his downfall at Sunderland, with many Sunderland fans greeting tonight's news with great delight, especially on the back of the capture of Juventus' Italian international Emanuele Giaccherini.

It's highly unlikely Paolo Di Canio will have little interest in keeping Graham at the club, but it still remains to be seen if Hull and Bruce can up their apparent interest into a very real offer, as Sunderland will want to recoup at least half the money spent on bringing him to the club in the first instance back in January.

Should Graham leave it perhaps shouldn't be the wild party everyone seems to be planning, but he's clearly not cut out for this level or the level we're hoping to achieve, and all parties can move on quite quickly. Hopefully.
