Sunderland could make Leeds United fans jealous, if they complete double-swoop

Elland Road

Simon Grayson is said to want to sign ex-Leeds United pair Robert Snodgrass and Max Gradel for Sunderland.

Sunderland could make Leeds United fans very jealous this summer, if Simon Grayson is able to bring two of his top targets to the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland were said by the Telegraph to be interested in West Ham United winger Robert Snodgrass yesterday.

And HITC exclusively broke the news that Max Gradel is the latest name to join Grayson’s transfer wishlist.

Grayson worked with both Gradel and Snodgrass at Leeds, earlier in their respective careers.

And Leeds fans, themselves, have been hoping to see Gradel and Snodgrass back at Elland Road for some time.

However, it appears that Sunderland are more likely buyers for the pair this summer.

Sunderland are keen to improve their attacking options, as they go for promotion.

And if the Black Cats are able to complete the double-swoop for the ex-Leeds pair, they may well see some enviable glances in their direction from supporters of the Whites.
