Report: Sunderland Midfielder In Demand

Laurence Griffiths

Reports today suggest Craig Gardner is being looked at by a number of Championship clubs.

The Daily Mirror today report that Sunderland's midfielder Craig Gardner is being chased by a trio of Championship clubs.

Reports suggest that Queens Park Rangers, Nottingham Forest and his former side Birmingham City are all in the frame to sign Gardner once his contract comes to an end this summer.

Despite a recent improvement in form from Gardner it seems unlikely he see his deal renewed at the Stadium Of Light, in a season where he's made just 14 Premier League appearances, with 7 of those coming from the bench.

A move to Birmingham would appear to be the most favourable on paper to Gardner, what with his affinity for all things Midlands but that's not to rule out Nottingham Forest too who aren't a million miles from his favoured part of the country.

Forest would likely also be able to offer him Premier League football too if they maintain their current charge towards the top flight.

Sunderland today were also linked briefly with an unlikely move for Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott, however wages, age and a lack of mobility and passing ability seem to suggest that this is a complete non-starter, and we put it at the end of this article to treat such a report with the disdain it deserves.
