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.

Am I the only Sunderland fan that wants to see Fellaini in red and white next year ? #safc— Robson Brown (@brownrobson97) July 29, 2016
We're also keen on signing N'Zogbia permanently. If we get; M'Vila, Fellaini, Januzaj, Yedlin too I'll be v happy. Need a striker tho #safc— James-Z (@jamesssxo) July 29, 2016
Fellaini would be a 'next level' signing, therefore we won't get him. #SAFC— Lee Wickham (@LdoubleE_87) July 29, 2016
We're usually up against it with 11 men so if we sign Fellaini we'll be right up against it given his on-pitch transgressions. #SAFC— David (@DavesTwescapade) July 28, 2016
Hoping Man Utd buy Pogba so it'll pave the way for Fellaini to Sunderland. Next week massive for us #safc— no its butters (@BtotheU) July 28, 2016
David Moyes please do not sign fellaini and instead sign nzogbia and mvilla. Thanks! #SAFC— Nick McDonald (@NickDMcD) July 28, 2016
Fellaini would be an excellent signing for #safc Unplayable for Everton at times and Moyes knows how to get the best out of him.— Callum Mackay (@calmackay90) July 28, 2016
