Sunderland’s Jack Colback has been attracting a lot of interest from Premier League clubs this year, and now it seems that Swansea are interested in signing the free agent this summer.
Jack Colback – decision soon
Jack will have to make a decision on which club he will join within the next couple of days, and he could still stay at Sunderland, since the Wearside club are keen to keep him, and have recently offered him a new deal.
The Shields Gazette is reporting the new Sunderland offer is much improved from previous ones, and seems to meet the demands he has been making this year.
It was difficult for Sunderland before the end of the season to offer Jack good terms, because they didn’t know if they’d still be in the Premier League, but with their successful fight against relegation, they now know where they stand financially.
West Ham have also made a big move for the Englishman recently, and they could well be in the driver’s seat, and in addition to Newcastle, Sunderland, Swansea and West Ham – other clubs interested include Everton and Hull City.
Hull’s Geordie manager Steve Bruce knows all about Jack because of his time as Sunderland manager, and he sees him as a good signing for the FA Cup runners-up, who will be in the Europa League next season, and will need a bigger squad.
We should know who Colback has chosen before the end of the week, but don’t be surprised if Newcastle lose out in the race to sign the Killingworth-born player, which would be a pity.
