Sunderland 'make enquiry' for Premier League starlet wanted by Preston, Middlesbrough and West Brom

Sunderland have made an enquiry for Aston Villa man Cameron Archer – according to reports.

During the summer several Championship clubs were interested in a loan deal for Aston Villa striker Cameron Archer, yet the 20-year-old remained at Villa Park.

Sunderland, Middlesbrough and West Brom were among the clubs which were linked with the forward, while Preston were also said to be interested in re-signing Archer following a loan spell at Deepdale last season.

It was recently reported that Archer is hoping for a loan move in January, yet according to Lancs Live, Preston could be priced out of a move after Archer signed a new contract.

North End were said to be prepared to match wage offers from any other Championship clubs for Archer in the summer, but that was before the striker signed a new deal.

However, fresh reports from Football Insider state that Sunderland have made an enquiry for Archer, who was rated by former manager Steven Gerrard before his sacking.
