The Latest: Galbraith on Johnson’s radar

Now, it is being reported Lee Johnson and co are interested in signing Galbraith from Manchester United.

The Red Devils are reportedly prepared to let the 20-year-old leave on a temporary basis, but Sunderland will face competition from a number of Championship clubs, as well as their League One promotion rivals.

Valued at £810,000 (Transfermarkt), he has extensive experience for United at youth level, and even has two caps for Northern Ireland.
