Liverpool are reportedly considering an approach for Sunderland midfielder Lee Cattermole.

According to The People, the 23-year-old is devastated at losing the Black Cats captaincy to John O'Shea, which could hasten the Reds into a £10 million offer for his services.

Although an admirer of Cattermole's tenacious style, Steve Bruce is alleged to have opted for a more experienced head as his captain for the new season, which has served as a huge blow to the former England under-21 international.

Liverpool have been credited with a supposed interest in Cattermole for a number of months and, if reports are to be believed, are ready to bring him to Anfield.

Should Cattermole join Liverpool, he will join up with former teammate Jordan Henderson, who made a £16 million switch to Anfield from the Stadium of Light in early June.


Liverpool have been adopting a policy this summer of signing players with Barclays Premier League experience and, seemingly, of British origin.

So far during the transfer window, Liverpool have recruited Henderson, Charlie Adam from Blackpool and Aston Villa winger Stewart Downing to the tune of over £40 million.
