Sunderland to pull plug on deal for Mavrias

Sunderland face frustration in their bid for Panathinaikos winger Charas Mavrias.

Sunderland face frustration in their bid for Panathinaikos winger Charas Mavrias.

The Evening Chronicle says the Black Cats agreed a £2.5m fee with Mavrias’ club Panathinaikos a fortnight ago and at that stage it looked like the deal would be completed quickly.

Mavrias had been expected to travel to England to undergo a medical and settle personal terms but so far he has not done so and the deal has not progressed.

It now appears that Sunderland’s interest in the highly-rated 19-year-old has cooled.
