EXCLUSIVE: Sunderland facing hammer blow over loan striker Grabban

Date published: Tuesday 28th November 2017 4:11

New Sunderland boss Chris Coleman is set to suffer a hammer blow with loan star Lewis Grabban likely to leave in January.

A host of clubs have already contacted the parent club of Grabban, Bournemouth, who are eager to transfer him on a permanent basis – something which Sunderland are unable to offer.

TEAMtalk understands Bournemouth have a recall clause in January, which will allow them to sell Grabban, and Sunderland will not be able to prevent the Cherries from enforcing the clause.

Both Wolves and Fulham are ready to make moves for 29-year-old Grabban, who has bagged 10 goals in 13 starts for the Black Cats so far during his loan spell.

Bournemouth re-signed Grabban from Norwich for £8million in January 2016, but he made only 18 appearances before joining Sunderland on a season-long over the summer.

Grabban left Bournemouth for Norwich for £3million in 2014.
