Black Cats target ready to leave Belgian side.
Anderlecht defender Roland Juhasz’s agent is exploring a loan deal for the Hungary international after Sunderland were linked with a bid.
Juhasz joined Anderlecht in 2005 and has been a fans’ favourite at the Belgian club until falling out of favour this season.
Ukrainian side Dnipro have shown an interest in the 29-year-old and reports have suggested Sunderland are considering a loan move as Juhasz’s representative Vladan Filipovic looks for a new club.
“FC Dnipro might be an option but we’re mainly thinking about a change of clubs in Western Europe,” said Filipovic.

Roland Juhasz’s agent would appear to be angling for a move to Sunderland, who have long been linked with interest in the experienced defender and Martin O’Neill may feel that this month is the right time to make an offer for the Anderlecht centre-back.
The Hungarian international has been at his Brussels based side seven years, helping them four domestic league titles among other successes and may feel that this is his chance to make an impact in one of Europe’s ‘big’ leagues.
Sunderland have conceded 29 goals in 21 Premier League matches this season and due to a lack of effective attacking strength O’Neill realises the importance of keeping clean sheets.
The Black Cats boss has relied upon Carlos Cuellar and John O’Shea as his chief central defensive options with Titus Bramble available as the main back-up defender, all three of these options are arguably prone to making errors and therefore a move for Juhasz could be a sensible one to consider.
