Sunderland bid £8m for Connor Wickham

23rd June 2011 - Sigvard Magnus

Sunderland football manager Steve Bruce is believed to have put in an £8 million bid for Ipswich Town starlet Connor Wickham.

The 18-year-old striker showed great form last season and has been linked to a number of Premier League clubs including Tottenham and Liverpool.

Sales of Darren Bent and Jordan Henderson by the Black Cats are believed to have left the north-east club with spare cash going into the new season - and Bruce clearly believes the youngster has what it takes to perform in football games at the highest domestic level.

The football manager has every confidence he can put together a formidable side for next season's league.

He told the club's official website recently: "We've been planning and preparing for months, but the early part of pre-season is when people tend to be on holiday, which slows things down.

"Rumours fly everywhere and we've already been linked with something like 50 players."
