Ipswich Town striker Connor Wickham will reject any move to Sunderland because he is holding out for a move to Liverpool or Arsenal.

The 18-year-old is currently the subject of an £8million approach from the Black Cats, but would prefer signing for the Reds, as he was a boyhood fan, or the Gunners,who have a history of nurturing young talent.

The England U21 international has impressed for both club and country this season and has been on the radar of Premier League clubs for the last two years, according to the Metro.

But Wickham’s preference of a move will not deter Sunderland boss Steve Bruce who is searching for a striker to replace Darren Bent who moved to Aston Villa in January.

Ipswich manager Paul Jewell expects a lot of interest in his teenage hit-man over the summer but insists the club is under no pressure to sell as Wickham only signed a new deal to keep him at the club until 2014 in April.

Meanwhile, Birmingham City midfielder Sebastian Larsson arrived on Wearside to complete a medical ahead of his free transfer to Sunderland.

The Swedish international has agreed to join Bruce’s men, and despite interest from the Liverpool, Aston Villa and Blackburn, will be unveiled at the Stadium of Light on July 1.
