Sunderland have made an enquiry for Cardiff City striker Jay Bothroyd, as they look to replace Darren Bent, who left for Aston Villa in a £24 million move. Bothroyd is believed to be among a list of Steve Bruce’s targets as he looks to replace one England international with another in the 28 year old Bothroyd.
The striker is out of contract at the end of the season and has yet to accept a new deal that Cardiff has offered to him, which will be good news for Sunderland manager Steve Bruce as he looks to strengthen his squad before the January 31st transfer window deadline.
Bluebirds manager Dave Jones is adamant that he wants Bothroyd to stay at the club, but his resolve could be tested with the fee rumoured to be in the region of £3-5 million. Newcastle are also keen to enquire about the centre forward, who has had seven professional clubs in his career so far including Italian side Perugia and Championship clubs Norwich and Coventry.
