Ipswich Town have had a bid accepted for Colchester United full-back Kane Vincent-Young, but Sunderland are monitoring the situation and may join the race for his signature as reported by Sky Sports. (Live Blog:15/8/19: 9:46).
The twenty-three-year-old signed a new two year deal with the U’s last summer after spending an unsuccessful trial with Ipswich under their previous manager Paul Hurst. He’s racked up over one hundred senior appearances for John McGreal’s men since emerging through their successful academy after arriving at Colchester in 2014 following his release by Spurs.
The versatile defender can play in either full-back position and is also comfortable in a more advanced role.
The report claims the Tractor boys are in pole position to secure Vincent-Young’s services after agreeing on a deal with the League Two outfit, but Sunderland are monitoring the situation and could join the race to sign the highly-rated youngster.
Black Cats boss Jack Ross is known to be in the market for a left-back following the departure of Bryan Oviedo and Reece James from the Stadium of Light and recently revealed the club had missed out on four full-back targets so far during the transfer window.
We think Sky are putting two and two together here and making five.
Sunderland desperately need a full-back, and there is no doubt the youngster would be a great addition to any League One squad.
However, most reports suggest Vincent-Young is on his way to Portman Road, and we would be amazed if the youngster ends up in the North East.
