Out-of-favour Sunderland midfielder Dylan McGeouch could be given a way out of his nightmare spell in the north east after it emerged that two Scottish clubs want to sign him in January.

The 26-year-old Glaswegian has appeared in just six league games for the Mackems this season, after starting just 14 out of 46 games in the league last term.

With appearances limited, speculation has arisen over his future at the Stadium of Light, and according to The Daily Record, two SPL sides want to sign him when the January transfer window opens.

Aberdeen reportedly want to bring him to Pittodrie and former club Hibernian, who McGeouch left to join the Black Cats in 2018, are also thought to be keen to have him back.

McGeouch started games under former boss Jack Rose but has only featured once in a cup game since Phil Parkinson’s arrival at the club.

He only has six months left on his contract and the Daily Record says that McGeouch will review his options and potentially leave in January if he does not return to the squad for their games in December.
