Bruce is being linked in the Daily Mirror with a bid for Leadbetter as a replacement for Wilson Palacios if the hondutran’s transfer goes through.

23 year old life long Sunderland fan Leadbitter is un.der contract with the Black Cats until 2011 but is believed to be unhappy and amenable to a move.

As a replacement for Palacios this would represent a tidy profit for Mr Whelan.
