Sunderland fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini in the summer transfer window.

According to The Sun, recently appointed Sunderland manager David Moyes wants to bring Fellaini to the Stadium of Light this summer.

The Scotsman has previous experience of working with the Belgium international midfielder, first at Everton and then at United.

The 28-year-old has been on the books of the Red Devils since the summer of 2013, but he is not guaranteed a place in the starting lineup.

The former Standard Liege midfielder has been in and out of the team at Old Trafford and has failed to recapture the form he showed at Everton.

Competition for places in the United midfield next season will be fierce, and Fellaini could have to play the role of a squad player under new manager Jose Mourinho.
