Lascelles Well Outside Poyet's Budget!

19 December 2013 08:35
Sunderland are one of a number of Premier League clubs tracking Nottingham Forest youngster Jamaal Lascelles.

Spurs and Aston Villa have been watching the 20-year-old over recent weeks after his promotion into the Forest first-team.

The England Under-20 international central defender has made nine appearances for Forest this season.

If Sunderland made a move for Lascelles, he would not be an immediate option in the Premier League for Gus Poyet . AND he could be beyond Poyet's budget.

Arsenal saw a £5million offer rejected for the then 17-year-old in 2011 when a number of the Premier League’s heavyweights, including Tottenham and Liverpool were keeping a close eye on him.

That £5m could be spent on a couple of experienced players needed for Premiership survival
