Roker Roundup: Report claims takeover uncertainty could cost Sunderland in chase for winger

New, comments

The Daily Record claim that uncertainty around Sunderland’s takeover situation could cost us in our apparent pursuit of Motherwell winger Chris Cadden.

Your daily reminder of Sunderland news!

Takeover saga set to cost another target?

Sunderland have been linked with a move for Motherwell winger Chris Cadden recently but reports suggest that the uncertainty surrounding the Mark Campbell takeover may see Jack Ross miss out on him - something that reportedly happened to the interest in Lawrence Shankland as well.

The Daily Record report that MLS side Columbus Crew are considering signing the free agent and then loaning him straight out, with Oxford United amongst the interested clubs should that happen.

The report goes on to say that any English club would have to pay a £150,000 compensation fee to the Scottish Premiership side, an obstacle for Sunderland with Ross being limited as to what he can do in the transfer market until the club’s future is resolved.

Pybus join QoS

Sunderland academy product Dan Pybus has joined Scottish Championship side Queen of the South on a one-year deal after leaving Norwegian outfit FK Tonsberg.

The 21-year-old has been signed by ex-Sunderland player Allan Johnston for the club’s forthcoming 2019-20 season and he told how Pybus earned his contract after training with the team over the last fortnight:

We have mainly brought in defenders and forwards so far so we’re happy to have added another midfielder to the squad. Dan has been training with us for a couple of weeks now and played during our game against Airdrie.

He is young and athletic and we feel that he is worthy of a contract. It’s his first spell in Scottish football but he has experience of league one in England and abroad so I’m sure he will take to it no problem.


Ustari joins Liverpool

Ex-Sunderland goalkeeper Oscar Ustari has joined a new club after leaving Mexican side Atlas.

The Argentine has signed a six-month deal with Liverpool but unsurprisingly not Jurgen Klopp’s side but the Uruguayan club based in Montevideo.

Since leaving Sunderland back in 2014, Ustari has featured for Newell’s Old Boys and, more recently, Atlas.
