Report: Greek Winger Next In Sunderland's Sights

There wouldn't be a 'y' in the day if a new name wasn't linked with Sunderland...

According to reports in Italy, the latest player to attract a Sunderland bid is Panathinaikos winger Charalampos Mavrias.

It is claimed the offer for the 19-year-old is €2m (around £1.7m), though whether or not that would be sufficient to prise away a player highly rated by the Athens club, should the interest prove genuine, remains to be seen.

Despite his tender years, Mavrias is already a full Greek international, and so it would seem unlikely that should he arrive he would be earmarked for an initial role in the developmental squad.

Pananthinaikos are also enduring some financial problems which may make them more inclined to sell one of their top assets. The situation was so poor in fact that last November they were unable to pay their electricity bill and ordered to play games during daylight hours before resolving the situation.

However, it is also noteworthy that at the start of the summer their president, whilst acknowledging the club would have to sell players, specifically named Mavrias as one who would not be allowed to leave the club.

We'll do our best to follow it.
