After being transfer listed by Peterborough, some amusing claims have emerged on ex-NUFC defender Steven Taylor – with suggestions that he could be the perfect signing for Sunderland this summer.
The 32-year-old ended a spell of almost 15 years at St James’ Park in 2016, having since endured spells with Portland Timbers, Ipswich Town and Peterborough.
For a player who’s often struggled with injuries, he’s played an impressive 50 games in all competitions for the Posh (scoring 4 times), however Steve Evans recently confirmed that the ex-Wallsend Boys Club youngster will be available this summer.
Step in Sunderland!

Let’s be honest, we can’t actually see this one happening, but Sunderland may just be on the lookout for a League One proven defender after shipping 80 goals this season – and he may just fancy a return to the North-East.
