Fletcher: Plenty of my family are Sunderland fans
Fletcher admits many of his family are Sunderland fans.
He told safc.com: "I've got family up here so they've been telling me every day when I've spoken to them about the Sunderland supporters since I was first linked with the club.
"They're Sunderland fans as well so that's a bonus, and I'm looking forward to them coming and watching me at the Stadium of Light.
"My step-dad is a big Sunderland fan and I think he'll be getting my name on the back of his shirt!"
