Sunderland midfielder Dylan McGeouch is considering his future at the club ahead of the January transfer window.
The twenty-six-year-old is in the final year of his contract at the Stadium of Light, and he’s failed to make a league appearance since the sacking of Jack Ross in early October.
According to a report in the Daily Record, the Scotland international’s situation has alerted several clubs north of the border to the possibility of doing a deal for McGeouch in January.
Aberdeen are said to be keen while a return to Hibernian is also being muted. Hibs are now managed by former Sunderland boss Jack Ross who signed McGeouch on a free transfer for the Black Cats following his departure from Easter Road in 2018.
The report claims McGeouch could be set for a return to Scotland if he fails to impress Phil Parkinson and return to league action before the transfer window opens.
The former Celtic man has struggled to hold down a first-team birth at the Stadium of Light, making only forty-two outings in total.
He was linked with a move to Aberdeen in the summer but opted to sign a one-year contract extension with Sunderland.
Like most Sunderland players, McGeouch divides opinion amongst the club’s expectant fanbase.
Bearing in mind his lack of game time, a move away from Wearside seems highly likely in the summer, and Jack Ross must be the favourite to sign him for Hibs.
