The Manchester United midfielder Ethan Robson is reportedly on Sunderland’s list.

Some Sunderland supporters would rather play one of their own than sign James Garner from Manchester United.

Sunderland are among the clubs being credited with an interest in the Manchester United midfielder likened to one of his predecessors – and the current Red Devils assistant, Michael Carrick – ahead of the January transfer window (The Sun).

Garner made his full Manchester United debut against Partizan Belgrade on Thursday, following a cameo against Crystal Palace last season, and is also said to have interest from Preston North End and Wigan Athletic.

But despite his growing profile, the following Sunderland fans are clamouring for a player who’s been starring in League Two instead – the Mackems-owned Ethan Robson.






Robson has played seven times for loan club Grimsby Town this season and has scored or made an impressive four goals from Garner’s position.

The 23-year-old local product is due to return to Sunderland in January and cannot be recalled before then due to Fifa transfer regulations.

It is claimed that the Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is reluctant to sanction anything other than a temporary move for Garner (The Sun)
