Sunderland join Quinn race

Last updated : 07 June 2008 By Jamie Furniss
The Sun claims that The Black Cats will join the race with fellow north easters Middlesbrough. Quinn has been involved in many speculations with Boro but now Roy Keane looks the favourite to sign the 22 year old.

Gareth Southgate was impressed with Quinn when he saw him play two games and a extra time battle with his Middlesbrough side last season in the FA Cup.

Sunderland's bid is £500,000 higher than Middlesbrough's but if he does go to one of these clubs, he may choose his decision on who will survive the drop or will he get a first team place. Time will tell.
