Sunderland could hijack Crystal Palace’s bid for Quincy Owusu-Abeyie.
Former Arsenal winger Owusu-Abeyie has been on trial with Premier League new boys Palace, but is yet to be offered a contract.
Now, the Black Cats’ manager Paolo Di Canio is weighing up a move to bring the well-travelled Ghana international to Wearside.
The 27-year-old, who was loaned out at Birmingham, Cardiff and Portsmouth during a three-year stint with the Gunners, has been told he can leave his current club, Greek giants Panathinaikos.
Elsewhere, Di Canio wants a decision from homegrown midfielder Jack Colback, who is stalling on a new contract offer.
Colback has just 12 months left on his current deal at the Stadium of Light, and newly-promoted duo Hull and Cardiff are ready to offer the 23-year-old a fresh challenge.
Di Canio would love to keep the former England youth international, who has also filled in successfully at left-back in making almost 100 appearance for a club he joined at age 10.
The Italian wants a swift decision: “I’ve spoken to Jack twice recently, he’s a genuine guy with a fantastic attitude.
“He has to make clear what he wants to do in the future because if a player has it in his brain to leave, it’s difficult.”
