Sunderland manager Lee Johnson is looking to bolster his midfield as the Stadium of Light club look to end their stint in the third tier of English football. McCann became a Saints legend last season by helping the club win a historic League Cup and Scottish Cup double.

McCann is the fourth St Johnstone player from last term to be linked with a move to Sunderland this summer, Jamie McCart, Scott Tanser and Guy Melamed all reported targets.

While McCart remains at St Johnstone, Tanser has joined St Mirren and Melamed is a free agent, seeking a new club.
