Sunderland striker Andrew Nelson is wanted by clubs in England and Scotland, including Falkirk, should the Black Cats decide to send him out on loan, according to The Sunderland Echo.

It has been reported that clubs in the Football League in England and in the Scottish Premiership and the Scottish Championship are interested in signing Nelson on loan in the summer transfer window.

Falkirk are also claimed to be interested in the 20-year-old striker, who spent the second half of the 2017-18 campaign on loan at Falkirk after joining the Scottish Championship side on loan in the January transfer window.

Leaving Sunderland on loan

Nelson has yet to break into the Sunderland first team, and although the Black Cats will play in League One next season, the 20-year-old striker may not get too many chances for the senior side.

It would make sense for the English youngster to spend at least the first half of next season out on loan at another club, in England or in Scotland, so that he gets competitive action on a regular basis.
