Sunderland could allow one of their regular first-team men to leave the club in the January transfer window.
According to a report by Sky Sports, Bryan Oviedo could depart the Stadium of Light if an offer comes in for him.
The experienced Costa Rica international is thought to have attracted plenty of interest from clubs abroad, whilst one team from the Championship are said to have contacted the Black Cats about a possible swoop.
The former Everton left-back is thought to be on a significant wage at Sunderland and it is understood that the club will be willing to sanction a move.
He joined the club when they were still in the Premier League and has since endured back-to-back relegations.
Although Oviedo has played a role in Sunderland’s efforts in getting the club within touching distance of an automatic promotion spot in League One, the opportunity to cash in on him could be too great for the club to turn down.
The Costa Rica international could command a big fee for the Black Cats and would help to ease their finances if they were to offload him.
However, with the way he is currently playing and Sunderland continuing their push to win promotion back to the Championship, the 28-year-old could still have a pivotal part to play in Jack Ross’ side.
