HITC is aware that several EFL teams are currently trying to get Richardson back into the league.

The 24-year-old started his professional career with Hartlepool United before being signed by Sunderland, the team from his birthplace.

He departed the Stadium of Light after two years without playing in the league to join Gateshead, where he has excelled.

It is true that Sunderland is among the teams expressing interest in Richardson, but they are not the only ones.

In addition, Oxford and the recently promoted Championship duo Derby, as well as Peterborough and Barnsley in League One and Notts County in League Two, are monitoring the situation.

Leaving Gateshead on a high note

Richardson will soon leave Gateshead, but he left them with fond memories after helping them defeat Solihull Moors in the FA Trophy at Wembley.

Richardson wrote on his Instagram account, “Truly one of the best days of my life!” to express his regret that he will never forget the victory in May. Walking up the Wembley steps as a winner was a dream come true, and I couldn’t have asked for a nicer bunch of people to do it with!
