A number of Sunderland fans have been commenting on Twitter about the transfer report linking the Black Cats with Nottingham Forest duo Zach Clough and Liam Bridcutt.

According to the Sunderland Echo, the Stadium of Light side has shown an interest in the Reds duo, both reportedly set for loan moves this month after finding themselves out of favour at the City Ground.

Bridcutt spent three years with Sunderland while they were in the Premier League, and in that time, he made 36 appearances for the Black Cats before he moved to Leeds United and then Forest.



After joining the East Midlands side on 2017, he had a loan spell at Bolton Wanderers, where he worked under Phil Parkinson, before returning to the City Ground in January.

Clough, meanwhile, hasn’t played for Forest since the end of January 2018 away to Hull City in the FA Cup, but in 121 professional appearances he has scored 28 goals and registered 11 assists.

Here is what some Sunderland fans have made of the speculation:

Sunderland are next in action on Saturday when they travel to MK Dons in League One.
