Replacement needed

Wigan manager Paul Cook has told Sky Sports that the Black Cats have made four bids, and that all of those offers have been turned down by the Championship.

Cook told Sky Sports: "I think Sunderland have made four bids for Will, but the fact we've rebuffed four bids, you can clearly see our intent is not to sell players.

“Unfortunately, everybody is expecting them to come back, but we want to strengthen and keep our better players."
