Sunderland move for Celtic's Lennon

Sunderland are stepping up their bid to land Celtic midfielder Neil Lennon.

Martin Reilly, Lennon's agent, said: "Neil's been offered a contract by a top Premiership club and several from the Championship and other divisions.

"At one point I thought he was going to say, `yes (to Wycombe)', but Neil is still a very talented footballer and wants to test himself at the highest level he can."

Sunderland are the "top Premiership" club, while Crystal Palace are one of the Championship clubs, says The Journal.
