Sunderland table bid for Man Utd trio

Sunderland have tabled a bid for Manchester United trio Wes Brown, Darron Gibson and a third member of the senior squad.

Sunderland are using the cash raised from Jordan Henderson's sale to Liverpool to make their move.

England international Brown, 31, was at one stage earlier in his career touted as the new Bobby Moore, but a succession of injury problems has hampered his progress in recent years.

Gibson too has had to remain patient as he seeks a regular place in United's star-studded midfield, and the 23-year-old's Republic of Ireland boss, Giovanni Trapattoni, has on more than one occasion suggested he might benefit from a move to a club where he would play every week.

The third United player is believed to be John O'Shea.
