Tottenham defender in advanced talks with Sunderland over permanent switch

Posted by

As Nuno Espirito Santo continues to get his Tottenham squad ready for the new Premier League season, the Portuguese appears to be willing to let one of his players move on.

Sunderland have shown an interest in defender, Dennis Cirkin, and according to Football Insider, the two clubs are now in advanced talks for the transfer.

The 18-year-old has made the first-team bench on a number of occasions, but has never actually played a minute for the senior side.

To that end, Nuno clearly considers Cirkin surplus to requirements.

An England U19 international, he also played on 14 occasions for Tottenham’s U23 side last season.

The Black Cats can therefore offer him a next career step.

Sunderland play against Wigan Athletic in their first League One game of the 2021/22 season this Saturday.

It’s expected that, if there are no problems at the 11th hour, Cirkin will be able to be included in the squad.
