Sunderland striker Steven Fletcher’s salary demands are casting doubt over his proposed move to Celtic…
With Fletcher in the final year of his contract, Sunderland are thought to be keen to move him on this summer rather than lose him on a free next year. A fee in the region of £4 million is thought to be required for the misfiring striker, who cost three times that in 2012 but has never recovered the momentum of his five goals in his first four matches. He went to score 11 that season, but just three the following year and five last time out. Celtic have always looked the most likely suitors with a deal including the Dutch defender – and long-time Sunderland target – Virgil van Dijk preferable. But Fletcher’s £50k a week salary is around double what the Scottish Champions are willing (or able) to pay. Jun 19 - 5:29 AM
