Connor Wickham is heading out of Sunderland - with Sheffield Wednesday leading the chase to sign him.
Sunderland signed Danny Graham last month and he is expected to partner Steven Fletcher in attack.
It leaves Wickham, 19, out of favour once again at the Stadium of Light.
Since moving from Ipswich for £8.1m in 2011, the young striker has managed just six starts in the league.
Ipswich have first refusal on any potential loan deal but they do not appear interested, with Sheffield Wednesday ready to seal a move.
