Sunderland youngster Thomas Robson is being tracked by a host of Football League clubs, according to a report in the Sunderland Echo.
Robson is yet to make his senior debut for the Black Cats, but his form for their under-21 side has been impressive this season.
Sunderland’s development squad currently top the Premier League’s reserve league, and the club are excited by the talent breaking through.
At the moment, Sam Allardyce has been reluctant to use his prospects in the senior squad, as Sunderland’s Premier League position is looking precarious.
The Black Cats are under pressure to pick up points, with the team currently sitting in the bottom three.
As a result, Sunderland are keen for their youngsters to go elsewhere to gain regular first-team experience, and Robson could be one of the players to depart.
The 20-year-old is said to be of interest to a number of clubs, and Sunderland are reportedly willing to sanction a temporary move before the loan deadline passes.
