Danny Graham: Sunderland have reportedly made a bid for the Swansea striker

The Gateshead-born striker has enjoyed an impressive run of form at the Liberty Stadium, striking interest from a number of Premier League clubs including Newcastle, QPR, Norwich and Reading.

Graham joined Michael Laudrup's Swans side in 2011 after making a £3.5m move from Watford, and has scored four goals in his last five games.

The 27-year-old has had limited opportunities under Laudrup after being forced to play second fiddle to Michu in attack, but is reportedly unable to leave Swansea until a replacement is found.

Stoke's Kenwyne Jones is Graham's purported replacement, with the Potters striker set to be given permission to talk with Swansea despite being a first team regular at the Britannia Stadium.

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
