Livingston striker Lyndon Dykes has discussed his future after gaining interest from a number of clubs, including Rangers and Sunderland.
Black Cats boss Phil Parkinson will have a busy summer ahead as he looks to build a squad at the Stadium of Light capable of gaining promotion to the Championship, with wholesale changes expected this summer.
Dykes, who impressed during the 2019/20 campaign, netted nine goals and provided eight assists in the Scottish Premiership and he is now gaining much interest with both Sunderland and Rangers said to be keen.
“I back myself 100%, and if I did happen to go anywhere I would do the best I can.
“I would learn off the players they have, the manager and once I got in that environment, I’d put my head down and work hard to be that striker that the club needs.”
Upon hearing of Rangers’ reported interest, former Celtic striker Frank McAvennie has claimed that the Ibrox club would not be able to afford a move for Dykes.
If Sunderland can afford a deal for Dykes, they should go for it, especially if Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is keen.
The Black Cats have struggled to find a potent scorer over the last few years, with Charlie Wyke their top-scoring centre-forward in 2019/20 with only six goals, and the Australian could be the perfect choice for Phil Parkinson moving into next season.
