Sunderland are interested in a summer move for Dunfermline goalkeeper Lee Robinson, according to the Scottish Sun.

The Black Cats, who are without a manager at the moment, are preparing for life in League One after being relegated from the Championship this season. Experienced goalkeeper Lee Robinson is a target for them as they look to build a new-look Sunderland side.

Robinson, who was born in Sunderland, has played the majority of his career in Scotland but could be set for a move to England this summer. He has played 21 times for Dunfermline this season in the Scottish Championship.

He started his career at Rangers and went onto play just one game for the Ibrox club and had loan spells at Greenock Morton, St Johnstone and Queen of the South. He then left Rangers on a free transfer to join Kilmarnock in 2009.

However, after just a season at Kilmarnock, he re-signed for Queen of the South on a permanent basis and spent three years there. His next move was to Swedish side Ostersunds and Robinson played for them for eight months under Englishman Graham Potter.

Robinson moved back to Scotland in February 2014 and joined Raith Rovers. After impressing for them in the Scottish Championship in his 7 months at the club, Rangers swooped to sign him again in August 2014. A spent another season at Ibrox, followed by another move back to Queen of the South before joining Dunfermline last summer.

Robinson is a well travelled goalkeeper but would add some depth to Sunderland’s goalkeeping options.
