Sunderland could make a move for England goalkeeper David James as cover for the injured Craig Gordon, Steve Bruce has told the BBC.Gordon, 27, will miss the start of the season with a broken arm, prompting Bruce to consider a move for James. [LNB]Bruce told BBC Radio Newcastle: "James could be somebody that we're interested in because of the problem. [LNB]"We have had a conversation with David's representatives. I'll make my mind up in the next week or so." [LNB]Bruce added: "It's something I didn't want to happen because I was very happy with Craig Gordon and how he did last year." [LNB]James, 39, left Portsmouth after representing England at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, and has also attracted the interest of Scottish Premier League side Celtic. [LNB] [LNB][LNB] Meanwhile the Black Cats are unlikely to sanction a loan move for striker Martyn Waghorn amid rumours of interest from Championship side Hull City. [LNB]Waghorn, 20, enjoyed a successful loan spell at Championship promotion hopefuls Leicester City last term, scoring 12 goals in 43 league appearances and Bruce sees the South Shields-born forward as part of his plans for the new campaign. [LNB]"The kid was outstanding on loan, and 70% of the Championship would like to take him," Bruce continued. [LNB]"I've said his future for me is with us this year, nothing has changed, so I wouldn't have thought I'll be loaning him this year."
