Sunderland striker to remain at club, for now, after move collapses

Sunderland's Danny Graham is likely to remain at the club, for now at least, after his move to Brentford fell through.

Sunderland's Danny Graham is set to remain at the Stadium of Light for the time being after a move to Brentford collapsed earlier today, according to the Shields Gazette

The Championship side were thought to be close to landing the experienced front-man on a short-term loan move, but the move fell through this morning. 

The Black Cats have been trying to offload Graham for a number of months now, but they have been unsuccessful in finding a suitor.

Wolverhampton Wanderers and Middlesbrough were linked with Graham before Brentford tried to land the 29-year-old. 

It seems unlikely that either of those teams will go back in for him, meaning that any deal appears some way off now. 

Graham is not likely to play a part for Sunderland this season, as Gus Poyet has seemingly decided to leave him out of his team this season.

Connor Wickham and Steven Fletcher are the club's first choice strike-pairing and Graham does not seem to have any chance of breaking them up. 

The striker has not scored in his 13 appearances for the club since joining in 2013 and is reportedly available on a permanent transfer for £1 million.
