Sunderland target Adam Le Fondre has discussed a transfer report linking him with a move to the Stadium of Light.
Black Cats manager Phil Parkinson faces an interesting off-season as he looks to improve his squad options ahead of next term.
With the transfer window now open, Football League World were the first to report that Parkinson was keen on much experienced striker Le Fondre.
Following on from FLW’s report, the Daily Mail added weight to such a report, claiming that Portsmouth were also keen.
Speaking about that interest in his services, Le Fondre, who currently plays for Australian side Sydney FC, said in an interview with the Australian Daily Telegraph, as quoted by Coventry Live:
“It’s nice for people to show interest but right now I’m focused on the team … we have some big games coming up.
“As a striker I want to keep scoring. It would be nice to win the Golden Boot but if I had the choice I would rather win the grand final again.”
Le Fondre, having previously played in England, has netted 181 senior goals during his career in in the Football League for a plethora of clubs.
It seems that the striker is keen to continue impressing with Sydney FC and has set himself personal targets with his current club, but a tempting contract offer from the likes of Sunderland could lure him back to England.
His scoring record suggests that he could be tremendous addition at the Stadium of Light – it’s just a matter of whether the Black Cats can make a convincing enough case to tempt him back from Australia.
