Sunderland interested in Tottenham Hotspur’s Aaron Lennon - report

Sunderland have joined Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion in the race for Tottenham Hotspur’s Aaron Lennon, according to a report.

Sunderland are reportedly interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur winger Aaron Lennon this month.

According to The Sun, the Black Cats have “joined the race” for the signature of the 27-year-old England international, who is reportedly also on the radars of Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion.

The report also states that clubs in Italy and Dubai are interested in Lennon, but it does not mention any names.

According to various reports in the British media in recent weeks, Tottenham are willing to let go of Lennon but only if they are offered £7 million as transfer fee.

The former Leeds United star has been on the books of Spurs since 2005, but this season he has struggled for playing time under manager Mauricio Pochettino.

Lennon has featured in only nine Premier League matches so far this campaign, in which he has created nine chances and has a pass accuracy of 85%.

The Englishman has made an impact on occasions after coming off the bench, leading many including former Tottenham chairman Lord Sugar to urge Pochettino to play him regularly.

However, as things stand, Lennon is available on the transfer market. It seems only a matter of which club coughs up the cash that Tottenham want.
