The ongoing speculation linking Tommy Elphick with a move across the City doesn’t seem to be slowing down and now Sunderland have entered the mix.

The 29 year old arrived from Bournemouth last summer and took the captain’s armband but lost his place and the skipper honour that moved onto James Chester.

It’s a typical ‘Sky sources understands’ with very little in terms of bones and depth to the story, but it largely serves as repackaging the original Birmingham rumours with the introduction of Sunderland’s supposed interest.

  • I really like Tommy and his attitude, but the truth of it is, he didn’t cut it when he had his opportunities. I think there was a better player in there somewhere, but we don’t have the time for him to figure that out – and at 29, we expected he’d hit the
