Sunderland transfer target Marcus Maddison has given an update on his future as he continues to be a free agent.
Maddison ended a six-year spell at Peterborough which saw him spend time on loan with then-Championship side Hull City for the second half of last season.
During his time in England’s second tier with the Tigers, the midfielder netted one goal in seven games, whilst he scored nine goals and supplied six assists for Posh during the first half of the season.
The 26-year-old, now available on a free transfer, has received interest from Sunderland, with multiple reports over the last few months claiming that the Wearsiders were keen to sign the boyhood Black Cats supporter.
