Sunderland Inc Wickham

The Sunderland trio could be set to depart as Sam Allardyce transforms his squad.

Seb Larsson, Jeremain Lens and Wes Brown are all set to depart Sunderland this summer, reports the Mirror.

After their late survival success with the 3-0 win over Everton on Wednesday, Sam Allardyce is already planning for the future.

He is keen to improve the squad and ensure that they do not find themselves needing a late survival bid at any point again in the future.

A number of arrivals are expected at the club, but first attention will be turned to selling the players that the manager does not want.

According to the Mirror, three are already on the chopping block, with Seb Larsson, Jermain Lens and West Brown all set to depart.

The first two are likely to leave as a result of limited chances in the first team, while veteran Brown is out of contract and will be allowed to leave to free up wages elsewhere.

Indeed, they may not be the only ones facing the exit the door and several other squad players will likely be looking over their shoulders now that Premier League survival is assured.
