Sunderland manager Simon Grayson has admitted that he is interested in signing West Ham United outcast Robert Snodgrass this summer.

Various media outlets are reporting the news that Sunderland are keen on signing Robert Snodgrass.

Simon Grayson used to work with Robert Snodgrass at Leeds United and is aiming to reunite him.

The 29-year-old is out of favour at West Ham and has been told that he is free to leave the club.

The Scotland international only joined the Hammers in the January 2017 transfer window from Hull City but failed to make much of an impact in his 15 games for the East London based club.

The former Norwich, Leeds and Hull winger is not in Slaven Bilic’s plans and he was not included in the match day squad to take on Manchester United on the opening day of the season, despite the Irons having a dearth of available attacking midfielders.

As quoted on BBC Sport, Simon Grayson said:

“When people like him become available you would be foolish not to consider it.

“That would be a deal dictated by finances.

“Can we do it?

“Who knows, but we might ask the question.”

It remains to be seen whether Sunderland will follow up their interest with a concrete offer but West Ham will listen to offers and entertain any bids they receive.
