Sunderland Linked With Walsall Midfielder George Dobson

With the League Two campaign getting underway in less than four weeks time, Walsall midfielder George Dobson continues to be linked with a move away from Banks's Stadium, with a North East based club said to be close to getting their man.
The London-born 21-year-old, who 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.

The latest club to be heavily linked with Dobson is Sunderland with the Stadium of Light club keen to rebuild their squad ahead of a potential challenge on the League One title following last season's disappointing Play-Off Final defeat to Charlton Athletic.

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 - as he is a player who is both available for the first-team but also has plenty of scope for improvement.
