Bournemouth turn to Sunderland winger Buckley as Gradel replacement

Sunderland's Will Buckley is the subject of interest from newly promoted Bournemouth, it has emerged.

The Cherries' were dealt a blow at the weekend when £7m winger Max Gradel was subbed off with a knee injury.

The Ivorian has ruptured cruciate ligaments in his knee, it has since emerged, and faces a lengthy stint on the sidelines.

Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has inquired about a potential move for the 25 year old Buckley, according to The Daily Mirror.

Although Buckley has fallen out of favour at the Stadium of Light, it is unlikely Dick Advocaat would be willing to sell to a relegation rival.
