Sunderland 'Close' to Signing Walsall Midfielder George Dobson

According to reports in the North East, Sunderland are set to secure the signature of Walsall midfielder George Dobson, with the Stadium of Light club hoping to complete a deal for the 21-year-old 'shortly'.
Several Sunderland-based newspapers believe London-born Dobson is close to agreeing terms on a move to the North East as the Black Cats look to bounce back from last season's League One Play-Off Final defeat to Charlton Athletic.

Sunderland's search for a midfielder has stepped up over recent weeks following the departure of Lee Cattermole with manager Jack Ross keen to add a player who is both capable of performing but with scope for improvement.

'Dobbo' has made sixty-five first-team appearances since he returned to the Black Country from Sparta Rotterdam in January 2018, has been the subject of plenty of transfer interest over recent weeks and months with clubs from up and down the football pyramid said to be keen to acquire his services.

George is contracted to the Saddlers until the end of June 2021 and is expected to command a healthy six-figure fee with Saddlers manager Darrell Clarke needing to re-enter the transfer market to add another midfielder to his squad ahead of August's Transfer Deadline Day.

Dobson, who enjoyed spells with Arsenal and West Ham United before linking up with the Saddlers, is not short of suitors - Hull City have also been heavily linked - and will likely continue to be the focus of attention if a switch to Sunderland doesn't take place.
