Sunderland are interested in making a move for defender Morgan Feeney, who left Premier League side Everton this summer.
Links with a number of other players have also emerged as Parkinson looks to bounce back next year after a disappointing eighth-placed finish which saw the Wearsiders miss out on promotion to the Championship for a second consecutive season.
Feeney, who has been training with the Black Cats this summer, departed Everton when his contract at Goodison Park expired in the summer. The 21-year-old defender spent time on loan with Tranmere Rovers during the 2019/20 season, also making 12 appearances for Everton’s under-23 side in Premier League 2.
Available on a free transfer, Feeney is right footed and would seemingly hand Parkinson some strength in depth at centre-back.
Whilst Feeney has been developing well at domestic level, the youngster has also made appearances for the England national side at under-17, under-18 and under-19 level.
Sunderland’s potential interest in Feeney is welcome for the club.
The young defender should be chomping at the bit to make an impression with the Black Cats and, with his development at Everton and national team representation, fans on Wearside could be quite welcoming to his arrival as Parkinson’s men seek to finally return to the Championship.
