A-League goalscorer Adam Le Fondre is set to make a decision on his future with interest from both Sunderland and Indian side Mumbai City.
After failing to gain promotion last term from League One to the Championship, Sunderland boss Phil Parkinson is under pressure to build a squad capable of ensuring that landmark this coming season.
A link to Sydney FC striker Le Fondre has since developed with Football League World first reporting such interest.
And, with the A-League season now over, ending with the Grand Final being won by Le Fondre and his side, the striker’s future is set to be addressed.
The World Game claim Le Fondre has not received the contract assurances he was seeking at his current club and that he could now choose between a return to the English Football League with Sunderland or a move to India where Mumbai City are showing interest.
Le Fondre, having previously played on these shores, has netted 181 senior goals during his career in in English football for a number of different clubs.
Fondre, who is valued at £720,000 by Transfermarkt, you would imagine, would potentially hold off a return to England, given that he is entering the final playing days of his career.
Moving to Australia has always been seen as an edge towards retirement and that would arguably put a move to India ahead of a Stadium of Light arrival.
That being said, Le Fondre could have one final desire to find the back of net in England and increase that impressive career goal tally, perhaps seeking out 200 goals in English football.
Do you think Le Fondre would make a good signing for Sunderland? Let us know in the comments section below…
