Earlier this week, the Black Cats were linked with two fresh names as transfer chiefs Kristjaan Speakman and Stuart Harvey look to meet Michael Beale's needs. Sunderland's head coach needs another striker and that has seen Sunderland's name mentioned alongside Notts County forward Macaulay Langstaff, who is also been linked with Birmingham City and Derby County.

The prolific goalscorer moved to Notts County from North East club Gateshead and starred for Notts County as they won promotion from the National League last season, scoring 42 goals in 47 games. The 26-year-old has already notched 20 further goals this campaign.

Reports state that Peterborough United are keen to land the 26-year-old to help their promotion push from League One. Birmingham City, Sunderland and Derby County are also listed as clubs who have shown an interest, as have Wrexham and Hearts.

Sunderland are also said to be targeting Leicester City defender Luke Thomas to strengthen left-back position, according to Sunderland Nation. The Black Cats have suffered injuries in defence with Niall Huggins and Dennis Cirkin set to be out for extended periods through injury.

The 22-year-old has played more than 50 times for Leicester in the Premier League, started the 2021 FA Cup final and has experience in the Europa League. It is thought that Thomas could be available on loan.
