Hume is a senior Northern Ireland international and, at just 22, he seems to be a key member of the Black Cats’ club team.

This season, he has made 40 appearances for Sunderland and has not missed a single league game.

Leeds is reportedly one of the clubs that have pursued him, according to the Belfast Telegraph, indicating that his progress has not gone unnoticed.

Among the other parties listed as interested are Napoli, Aston Villa, Leicester, and AFC Bournemouth.

Hume joined Sunderland in 2022 after being recruited from Linfield, thus his departure would be devastating.

Since coming to England, he has made 78 appearances, tallying three goals and three assists.

After a disappointing campaign, the Black Cats fired two of its managers. The first person to lose their job was Tony Mowbray, followed shortly after by Michael Beale.

Currently serving as an interim first-team manager, Mike Dodds has been connected to a move for former Sheffield United manager Paul Heckingbottom.

Blackburn Rovers’ dominance at the Stadium of Light on Easter Monday, where they won 5-1 with ease, added to the club’s problems.

Given Sunderland’s current state of disarray, Hume might find it alluring to leave the team during the summer transfer window.

Leeds may find his versatility interesting because he can play in midfield or on either side of defence.

Archie Grey, a midfielder for Leeds, has played right back for most of the current season.

Sam Byram was also utilised there, despite his fitness issues.

When Luke Ayling was loaned to Middlesbrough and Djed Spence’s loan was terminated early in January, the team’s supply of right-backs was severely limited.
