Toffees look to bring in adaptable Black Cats star.
Everton boss Roberto Martinez is keen to bring in Sunderland midfielder Jack Colback this summer according to the Daily Mail.
The adaptable Black Cats star is out of contract in the summer and could be picked up on a free transfer, something Sunderland boss Guy Poyet is attempting to avoid.
Colback has been in talks with the Stadium of Light side over a new deal for some time but may well look to hold out until the summer given that Sunderland are in a real relegation dogfight.
Sunderland will play Man City in the Capital One Cup final next weekend but are currently in the relegation zone despite Poyet’s best efforts.
Colback is into his fifth season in the Sunderland first team having joined the club as a ten year old and has started 20 of the club’s 26 Premier League fixtures so clearly a pivotal member of the first team set-up.
A move to Everton would prove hard to resist if Sunderland did fail to beat the drop.
