Ex-Sunderland captain Gray says Wolves striker Fletcher worth going extra yard

Former Sunderland captain Michael Gray has urged his old club to push the boat out for Wolves striker Steven Fletcher.

Gray has pleaded the Wearsiders to act fast before the season kicks off next weekend.

"He's a very good player, he's a goalscorer and that's what Sunderland have been missing," Gray told the Sunday Sun.

"I don't think they have ever replaced Darren Bent.

"But Steven Fletcher scored 12 goals in what you would have to say was a poor Wolves side last season, so he'd be playing with better players around him.

"And he would get great service from Seb Larsson and James McClean out wide."
