Sunderland are said to be interested in signing Grant Leadbitter from Middlesbrough this summer.
Sunderland fans largely appear behind the idea of bringing back Grant Leadbitter from Middlesbrough.
Leadbitter developed in Sunderland and was in their first-team for six years, before he moved on to Ipswich Town in 2012.
The midfielder has since become a very solid option at Championship level, but he is reaching the end of his career now.
And Sunderland fans are eager to see the 32-year-old brought back to the Stadium of Light.

Would be a fantastic signing— Safc phil corcoran (@cockneymackem) May 31, 2018
Ideal. We need to save money if we can – no point splashing it about when players like this are available on a free for League 1 footy.— Tony H (@tonyhson) May 31, 2018
He will be back— Gary Stevens (@freedawearside1) May 31, 2018
I’d be happy with him— SAFCDAVID (@DavidHindmarsh7) May 31, 2018
Get him— Dylan M (@D_Mellooo) May 31, 2018
There were massive fears that Sunderland would struggle in League One this season, but the noises coming out of the club are positive.
New owner Stewart Donald has already claimed that Sunderland have a big budget, and Leadbitter would certainly prove the Black Cats’ ambition.
Leadbitter made 32 appearances for Boro in the Championship last season, scoring three times and claiming one assist.
