The report also believes that Birmingham are among a host of other interested parties, while Chronicle Live say Sunderland want to reunite the player with his former PNE boss Simon Grayson.

The 25-year-old striker's future has been under the scanner towards the final days of the transfer window, with a number of Championship clubs chasing him at the moment.

Wolves' pursuit of Preston North End striker Jordan Hugill took a twist after Sky Sports reported that the player has handed in a transfer request.

Jordan Hugill's transfer request has been rejected by Preston North End.

With Preston taking a hardnosed stance on not selling Hugill, it remains to be seen whether any of his suitors put in a bid before Thursday's transfer deadline that could force the club to rethink their position.

Meanwhile, Reading may cool their interest in the Preston frontman, as they appear to have secured the services of attacker Sone Aluko from Fulham.

Hugill finished as their top scorer this season with 13 goals in 47 appearances in all competitions and he has scored three goals in five games already this term.
