Sunderland Make Improved £12m Bid For Wolves Forward Steven Fletcher

Black Cats make final offer for towering forward.

Sunderland have made an improved £12 million bid for Wolves striker Steven Fletcher, reports the BBC.

It is understood that the offer is Sunderland’s final bid, after newly relegated Wolves rejected £10 million last week.

The midlands club are said to be considering the proposal but 15 per cent of any profit must be paid to Fletcher former club Burnley.

The Scottish international arrived from Lancashire for £7 million in 2010 and has impressed in his two season with Wolves, scoring 22 goals in around 60 league appearances for a Wanderers side who have consistently found themselves near the foot of the table.

Sunderland are in the market for a striker after losing Asamoah Gyan and Niklas Bendtner this summer but Fulham and Stoke are also interested in Fletcher.

The 27-year-old has two years remaining on his current deal at Molineax but is understood to be unwilling to play in the Championship.

Fletcher has suffered relegation with both Burnley and Wolves but managed 12 league goals last season, more than any Sunderland player.
