Sunderland welcome Monaco interest for Johnson

Sunderland have welcomed the interest of AS Monaco in winger Adam Johnson.

The Sunderland Echo says while Everton and Hull's interest has only extended to a potential loan, Liverpool and Monaco have been credited with - and have the financial resources - to make an offer for a permanent deal.

Sunderland could look to win back the bulk of the £10m invested in him.

And as one of the club's biggest wage earners, any sale would help free up significant resources to aid Gus Poyet's rebuilding programme.
