Sunderland: Tottenham interested in re-signing Dennis Cirkin

Sunderland: Tottenham interested in re-signing Dennis Cirkin -Championship News

Sunderland defender Dennis Cirkin could be lured back to his former club, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Cirkin at Sunderland

The 20-year-old made the move to the Stadium of Light in August 2021, putting pen to paper on a three-year deal from Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur.

The left-back enjoyed an impressive debut season in the northeast and has once again started the Championship campaign strongly. However, the flip side of this good form is that he’s now attracting attention from elsewhere, and it sounds like the Lilywhites are keen on bringing their former starlet back to north London.

The Latest: Tottenham eyeing Cirkin

According to The Sun (via Sunderland Echo), Tottenham are ‘interested in re-signing’ Cirkin, and are ‘keeping tabs’ on his progress in the second tier.

The report states that Spurs could ‘launch a bid’ to secure the full-back, having inserted a ‘£6m buy-back clause’ in his contract.

Should they be successful, it’s claimed that Antonio Conte’s side might consider selling him on again, with their aim being to ‘make a profit’ by letting the player join a ‘rival’ club.

The Verdict: Don’t let him leave

Cirkin played a significant role in helping Sunderland gain promotion last season, featuring in 37 League One matches during that campaign, and they must do everything they can to keep hold of him in January.

The ‘standout performer’ – as hailed by sports journalist Josh Bunting – has made eight league starts this term and currently averages 2.8 clearances and 1.6 tackles per game (WhoScored), highlighting how he has often dominated opponents on his side of the pitch.

Should Sunderland sell Cirkin?





Tony Mowbray’s side are only four points away from the play-off positions, and Cirkin staying on Wearside could have a huge impact on where the Black Cats finish at the end of the campaign.
