The Daily Express have broadcasted the news from the Roker Report about the imminent transfer of Leeds United goalkeeper Andy Lonergan to the ranks of the Championship rivals Sunderland.
The same source has also stated the Whites will be looking to find a replacement before approving the transfer.
Manager Thomas Christiansen has put his trust in Felix Wiedwald, nailing the former Fulham keeper to the bench. However, the Leeds chief of staff doesn’t want to renounce on Lonergan before finding a backup option for Wiedwald.
The Black Cats are facing the relegation battle this season, and they are looking to sign an alternative to Robbin Ruiter, who underperformed over the last few months.
Chris Coleman has identified his defense as the main problem, and he desperately wants to keep his team in the Championship by addressing the issue.
On the other hand, Lonergan is seeking some regular first-team action, which could force the Whites to agree on the transfer.
