Sunderland and West Brom on alert as Vaughan seeks Premier League stay

The Sun is reporting that Blackpool midfielder David Vaughan is set to remain in the Premier League – even if Blackpool are relegated. The 28 year old is likely to be available on a free transfer and Sunderland, West Brom and Stoke are all said to be interested. Stoke manager Tony Pullis will hope that the possibility of European football next season may help to persuade the player to join Stoke.

Vaughan has made 32 appearances in the Premier League this season and has made a significant number of appearances in English football. Vaughan has been a regular for Blackpool, had a brief spell in Spain and started his career at Crewe – where he played regularly after coming through the youth system there. Earlier in his career he also played for the Welsh U19 and U21 team – before breaking into the full Welsh side in 2003.

David Vaughan is expected to be a man in demand in the summer and Rangers and Everton have been interested in the Welsh international in the past.
