Sunderland goalkeeper and former Hearts star Jon McLaughlin could make a transfer move this summer.

The stopper has been decent for Sunderland since he swapped Tynecastle for the Stadium of Light a couple of seasons ago. It’s even earned him Scotland caps and call-ups along the way.

With his contract up in the summer, McLaughlin is rumoured to be weighing up his options.

Looking to move up

The Scotland international is said to want another crack at Championship football (Lancashire Live). He hasn’t had any talks about renewing his Sunderland deal as he waits to see how their term pans out.


Championship side Blackburn are believed to be monitoring his situation. Spoken highly as one of the best keepers in the third tier of English football, the former Jambo would be a steal for nothing.

In his career so far, McLaughlin has had spells with Bradford City, Burton Albion, Hearts and Sunderland.

It could be that Blackburn becomes the next destination for the 32-year-old Scot.
