Sunderland allow Danny Graham to leave their pre-season training camp in Italy, according to reports.
Sunderland striker Danny Graham has reportedly left the club's pre-season training camp in Italy tonight, fuelling rumours over a loan switch to Hull City.
Graham has been strongly linked with a move away from the Stadium of Light this summer, despite joining the Black Cats for a fee of £5m in January.
Mackems boss Paolo Di Canio is not thought to consider Graham as part of his plans for next season, after signing a ready-made replacement in Jozy Altidore last week.
The 27-year-old has been allowed to leave Italy despite not carrying an injury and is free to find a new club, according to Sky Sports News.
Hull boss Steve Bruce has admitted that the Tigers are interested in signing Graham this summer, describing the former Swansea City striker as a "very, very good player".
Graham failed to find the net for Sunderland in 11 appearances last season, but did score seven times for Swansea before moving to the North-East.
