Sunderland full-back Phil Bardsley is a target for Fulham, Newcastle and Blackburn, according to Sky sources.

The Scotland international angered manager Paolo Di Canio towards the end of last season when he was pictured in a casino.

Di Canio left Bardsley out of his squad for the pre-season Asia Trophy in Hong Kong, and the 28-year-old has been back on Wearside training with the reserves.

Bardsley admitted earlier this month his time at Sunderland is up, and Sky sources understand his preference is for a move to London.
