Sunderland are competing with Liverpool for Chelsea fullback Ryan Bertrand.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers sees the England international as cover for Jose Enrique.

However, the Mirror says Sunderland boss Gus Poyet is also keen on Bertrand, who is out of favour with Blues manager Jose Mourinho.

Poyet hopes to set up a loan deal with his old club for the left-back.
