But Bullen has played down those reports, claiming that he has received no news of a second bid from Sunderland.

“The chairman has not mentioned a thing to me about Morgan Fox and Sunderland,” said Bullen, speaking at his pre-match press conference.

Jack Ross is keen to secure a left-sided defender before the transfer window closes, with Swansea City’s Welsh international Declan John the latest name to be linked with a switch to the Stadium of Light.
