Sunderland boss Jack Ross continues to be busy in the transfer market - and here's the latest from the Stadium of Light.

The Scot has already secured six new additions this summer, and a seventh may not be far away.

As exclusively revealed by sister title the Sunderland Echo yesterday evening, the Black Cats have seen a six-figure bid for Reading midfielder George Evans accepted.

Evans, formerly of Manchester City, is a cultured central midfielder who has racked up over 50 appearances in League One thanks to loan spells at Crewe, Scunthorpe and Walsall.

The 23-year-old is now set to undergo a medical at the Academy of Light tomorrow as the deal nears completion.

Meanwhile, Sunderland are also in the race for Bradford City striker Charlie Wyke.

A host of other teams - including Preston, Bolton and Peterborough - have been linked with the former Middlesbrough striker this summer.

While the Black Cats' bid has reportedly fallen below the Bantams' valuation, the Yorkshire side are hoping for a quick resolution.

And with that in mind, the Telegraph and Argus are reporting that the club are considering handing Wyke a 'deadline' to ensure that the transfer saga does not drag out.

Wyke has a year remaining on his deal at Valley Parade - and it is thought that Bradford would be willing to sell at the right price if a new contract cannot be agreed.
