Cattermole, Bardsley, Gyan to become Potters?
Phil Bardsley - right back - Last seasons Sunderland Player of the Season, allowing him to follow Whitehead and Collins before him, but with O'Shea and Brown having come in will surely find himself benched next season. Has been heavily linked with Stoke and wouldn't cost anymore than £2-3m - Asamoah Gyan - striker - Would take a massive bid to shift, around double the current club record £8m paid for Jones, but would suit the Potters style and could form a deadly partnership with Jones. Sunderland aren't flush with strikers so may not be a goer but if they need to sell to fund the players that have come in then Gyan could have to go - Craig Gordon - keeper - Probably lost his place in the side to either Stephen Mignolet or new signing Keiran Westwood and is on high wages so the Mackems won't want those wages sitting on the bench or in the stands. If Sorensen leaves in search of first team nogger or Begovic ends up at Chelsea then Gordon would be an ample replacement - Michael Turner - With defenders arriving left, right and centre Turner could be on his way to make way. TP has already stated he wants to bring in a centre back and Turner's stock has fallen recently so he may accept initially biding his time behind Huth and Shawcross knowing the season will be a long one.
