The most recent transfer news ahead of deadline day, with Sunderland preparing for a busy finale to the trading period.
The transfer deadline is Thursday at 11 p.m., and Sunderland is involved in many incoming and outgoing transfers ahead of a busy day.

The Black Cats have signed Leo Fuhr Hjelde from Leeds United, who can play both left and centre back, while Jewison Bennette has left on loan. Here, we look at the big transfer headlines you might have missed today:

Romaine Mundle to Sunderland for £2million


Tottenham burned after forward passes medical with left-field European  side; exit fully agreed


Romaine Mundle is allegedly flying to Sunderland for a medical.
Mundle came through Tottenham Hotspur’s development academy and signed his first professional contract with the club in May 2021, before leaving to join Standard Liege last year. During his time in London, the player trained with Tottenham’s first-team squad and was included to the matchday squad for a UEFA Europa League match against F.C. Pacos de Ferreira in 2021.

However, during his tenure at Tottenham, the midfielder primarily played for the club’s youth divisions in the Premier League 2 competition, scoring seven goals and assisting four times during the 2022-23 season. Mundle is primarily a winger who can play off either flank. Mundle has made six appearances in the Belgian Pro League after joining Standard Liege last summer on a four-year contract. However, the player appears to be moving to Wearside on a permanent basis.

Sunderland and Standard have agreed on a fee of roughly £2 million for the winger. Mundle turned down a long-term deal to leave Tottenham for Standard Liege because he wanted to play regular games, but now the highly rated forward.

Alex Pritchard depature immenent

In terms of outgoings, Mundle’s arrival will allow Sunderland forward Alex Pritchard to leave, with the former Norwich City player expected to reunite with old manager Tony Mowbray at Birmingham. A medical is expected today prior to a settlement. His deal with The Blues is anticipated to last until 2026.

The 30-year-old has six months left on his current Sunderland contract and was given a new one-year agreement, which he quickly rejected in favor of long-term stability. Pritchard then declared himself unavailable for last weekend’s match against Stoke City.
