The Scotland international signed a new long term deal with Wigan . so why does MON think he can get him?
And one thing is certain, it will take a lot more money to get him this time.
He previously coached Maloney at both Celtic and Aston Villa.
And the player is 30 year-old so Sunderland won't get a sell-on figure.
The Sunday People understands that if Wigan cannot avoid the drop, or if Sunderland make a bid of £2.5million then the midfielder will be on his way to Wearside.
