Welcome to the newsroom, we got fun and games...

Back from the four-day weekend and in no way feeling particularly fresh, it's The Roker Roundup, bringing you the best of today's SAFC news, or at least the bits that are worth reading anyway.

And as we like to include in these little sections, in no way just padding it out, we bring you a little factoid, so here's today's for April the 10th. On this very day way back in 1903, Sunderland played their final game at Horatio Road before moving to Roker Park. The game against Stoke City that day ended in a 0-0 draw.

Back on to today's news, here it is...

Starting off with a it of transfer news, and it looks as though Celtic could be plotting a move for Craig Gordon if they can't snare Fraser Forster from Newcastle. It's a nailed on certainty that Gordon will be on the move this summer, and Celtic wouldn't be the worst option for the Scotland international - CLICK HERE

TalkSport continue to fuel the speculation that Stephane Sessegnon could leave the club this summer for a 'big team' and once again label Arsenal the most likely candidate, whilst some mouth-breathers in the comment hope he'll go to Chelsea or Manchester City on the cheap - CLICK HERE

Metro lead with the story that is no doubt going to be bandied around all summer, as is the case every summer it seems, that Adam Johnson could be on his way to Sunderland. I'll believe it when I see it - CLICK HERE

Young midfielder Billy Knott has extended his loan spell at AFC Wimbledon until the end of the season. Knott has been in great form for the League 2 side, and the experience could help him make a push to the first team next season - CLICK HERE

Fellow young midfielder Jack Colback is still targeting a Top 8 finish despite the drubbing at the hands of Everton on Monday, and is backing himself and his teammates to come back strongly against Wolves in this coming weekends game - CLICK HERE

Meanwhile in talking about the Everton game, Martin O'Neill has blamed fatigue for the defeat. Not that I want to disagree with him too much, but Everton had games on the same day as us - CLICK HERE
