Sunderland boss Simon Grayson has admitted his interest in West Ham midfielder Robert Snodgrass.

The 29-year-old Scotland international has been told he can leave his current club just seven months after his arrival from Hull in a £10.2 million deal.

Grayson had revealed earlier this week that the Black Cats had missed out on a move for Bournemouth's Max Gradel despite reaching an agreement with the Cherries.

Asked if he was interest in Snodgrass, with whom he worked with at Leeds, Grayson told a press conference: "When people like him become available you would be foolish not to consider it.

"Again, that would be a deal dictated by finances. Can we do it? Who knows, but we might ask the question."
