Leeds, Sunderland in the mix to sign Newcastle United's Grant Hanley,

Post  Silvers on 2017-08-23, 6:36 pm

Bookmakers Bet Victor have priced Leeds United as 4/1 favourites to sign Newcastle United centre-back Grant Hanley, while Sunderland are also in contention.
The Scotland international only joined the Magpies last summer from Blackburn Rovers, but the arrival of Florian Lejeune has rendered him surplus to requirements under Rafael Benitez.
According to The Chronicle, Benitez offered the 25-year-old to Birmingham City, but Bet Victor have their Championship rivals Leeds as favourites to sign him this month.
It remains to be seen whether Leeds will bring in another centre-back before the window shuts. Thomas Christiansen has four capable centre-halves - Pontus Jansson, Matthew Pennington, Liam Cooper and Conor Shaughnessy - on his books but Leeds have been linked with the likes of Aden Flint, even after signing Pennington.
One club who might need a centre-back in the coming days is Sunderland, and the Black Cats, who could lose Lamine Kone before September, are 8/1 to bring him to Wearside.
Hanley wouldn't be the most popular person around that part of the country if he were to join Sunderland, but geographically it would make sense.
He might've cost Benitez around £5.5 million last summer according to The Daily Mail, but Newcastle have to sell players before they can buy over the next week or so, so the Spanish manager might be willing to take a cut-price deal just to offload him.

Well if last night taught us anything it is that even if Kone stays we need at least one more CB, two if he goes.

I think that last night was probably Pappy's Last Chance Saloon

But which other club  would take a chance on him ???

Unless he goes back to France of course....

And that is the problem, high wages, long contract
