According to a report by former Sky Sports journalist Peter O’Rourke, Sunderland have lodged a bid to sign Kieffer Moore from Barnsley.

O’Rourke claims that the Black Cats have put in an offer of £2m with the South Yorkshire club to sign their star striker, who has 15 goals this season and scored twice against us in the game at the Stadium of Light in November.

Moore - who stands at a mammoth 6”5 - has built up a reputation as one of the best forwards outside the Championship in the last two seasons after a memorable spell on loan at Rotherham last season, and then a successful stint as the focal point of Barnsley’s attack as they, like Sunderland, aim to get out of League One at the first time of asking.

You can read O’Rourke’s full report here - let’s just wait and see how this one progresses.
