Sam Greenwood could be on the move again, just a year after walking out of Sunderland.

The Wearside native spent a decade on Sunderland's books before he declined scholarship terms to join Arsenal, after 'making clear that he saw his future elsewhere'.

Whether or not either club - or any for that matter - could prise Greenwood away from Arsenal remains to be seen, although Sunderland could be in line for an unexpected windfall should he indeed be transferred.
