Sunderland have confirmed that a bid has been accepted for their versatile winger Kieran Richardson, with the offer more-than-likely coming from Fulham.

Queens Park Rangers are also thought to be after the former England international, but many media outlets are reporting that the bid has come from Martin Jol and not Mark Hughes.

He's a player that will not quite reach the caliber of the newly outbound Moussa Dembele, but his pace has the potential to cause various problems from both his favoured wing role and, of late, a full back role. His ability to play in both positions is thought to be hugely appealing to Jol - but we can expect more signings to come following the Dembele news.
