The Wearside club missed out on promotion to the Championship from League One last season, finishing eighth in the table.
Parkinson, who has been trusted to help guide the Black Cats back to England’s second tier, is now said to be keen on bringing in two players before the domestic window closes next Friday.
After already securing no fewer than six players, including the likes of Aiden O’Brien, Danny Graham and Morgan Feeney, a transfer link to Gotts has now emerged which could potentially make him the seventh new player at Sunderland in the summer transfer window.
Four teams now in for Robbie Gotts
Football Insider have reported that Huddersfield Town, Swindon Town and Doncaster Rovers are all keen on Gotts and have reportedly held talks with Leeds over a season-long loan deal.
With just over a week remaining for a deal to go through, Sunderland are now said to be keen, with The Northern Echo initially reporting the interest which was followed up by Sunderland Echo, who claimed Parkinson is keen on extra squad options.
Gotts, who can play either in midfield or defence, has featured for Bielsa’s first team just once in the Championship and twice in cup competitions (as per Transfermarkt).
Who should Gotts join on loan this season?
With minimal chances of first team football this season at Elland Road in the Premier League, a move to either the Championship or League One is seemingly on the cards for Goots.
Huddersfield could be an ideal destination for the youngster, with former Leeds coach Carlos Corberan now in charge at the Whites’ fellow Yorkshire club.
Swindon and Doncaster could offer the youngster ample playing time over the next 10-12 months in League One, a division in which Sunderland could also be able to hand him regular first team opportunities that currently seem out of reach at Leeds.
