Championship strugglers Sunderland and League One side Fleetwood Town are both interested in signing Manchester City youngster Kean Bryan, who is enjoying an impressive loan spell at Oldham Athletic this season.
The 21-year-old, who with his displays as a centre-back after originally being a midfielder has become a useful utility man, sees his loan spell with Oldham expire today and wants his future sorted.
And according to The Sun, while extending his stay with the Latics is one possibility, Chris Coleman’s Sunderland and Uwe Rosler’s Fleetwood are both thought to be keen on snapping him up.
Sunderland find themselves close to the relegation zone in the Championship, but remain a prolific club after years in the Premier League, while Rosler’s Fleetwood have a host of former Manchester City youngsters on their books in the form of Jordy Hiwula, Devante Cole and George Glendon.
Bryan, a local boy, has been with City since the age of 11 but appears to have little chance of making a breakthrough and at the age of 21, now may be the ideal time for him to move on a permanent basis from the Etihad Stadium.
