Report: Sunderland want to sell El-Hadji Ba, Charis Mavrias and Valentin Roberge

Sunderland are hoping to offload El-Hadji Ba, Charis Mavrias and Valentin Roberge this summer.

Sunderland are keen to offload El-Hadji Ba, Charis Mavrias and Valentin Roberge this summer, according to a report in the Sunderland Echo.

The Black Cats are still on the hunt for a new manager, but they still intend to cash in on the trio, who have been deemed surplus to requirements.

Ba, Mavrias and Roberge have all found first-team opportunities hard to come by at the Stadium of Light, and Sunderland are keen to sell all three as they head into a crucial transfer window. 

The Wearsiders know that they need to enhance the quality of their squad considerably in the next few months, but they want to make room for new signings before they start adding to their ranks. 

Sunderland are determined to start competing at the right end of the Premier League table, after two relegation fights in as many seasons. 

Ba, Mavrias and Roberge will be the first members of the current team to head out the exit door, as Sunderland look to cull some of their unwanted players.

The aforementioned trio only made a combined total of 15 appearances for the Black Cats and if they do leave, it would end a miserable time for them in English football.
