Gus Poyet planning £2m move for his son

Published Add your comment

Sunderland manager Gus Poyet hopes to make Manchester United and Arsenal target Diego Poyet his first signing at the Stadium of Light, according to the London Metro.

The newly-appointed Black Cats boss hopes to be reunited with his son on Wearside, and plans to make a bid of £2million for the Charlton Athletic midfielder.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been credited with an interest in bringing the England U18 international to the Emirates Stadium, but will now face a significant fight for his signature.

Manchester United have also been mooted as admirers of Poyet junior - who has been likened in playing style to Cesc Fabregas - but that was before David Moyes started his tenure at Old Trafford.

The talented youngster has been earning promising reviews in the Championship at The Valley, but the opportunity to work under his father, and in the Premier League, is a prospect that will likely be too good to turn down.
