WHAT OFFER? Wickham yet to hear from Sunderland about new deal

Connor Wickham faces being squeezed out at Sunderland.

Connor Wickham faces being squeezed out at Sunderland.

The 21-year-old has one year to run on his current deal and has not been offered a new contract – this despite manager Gus Poyet issuing the player with an ultimatum last week, says the Daily Mail.

The Uruguayan said: "For me, Connor’s situation is clear. He needs to sign a new contract or we let him go – we sell him. There is nothing in between."

But no new terms have been put to Wickham and this has alerted North-East rivals Newcastle United, who are in the market for another forward.
