Manchester United chase Gordon

Sunderland star Craig Gordon has emerged as the latest goalkeeper to be linked with Manchester United as Sir Alex Ferguson searches for a new No 1 for next season.
With veteran Dutch shot-stopper Edwin Van der Sar set to leave Old Trafford this summer and hang up his gloves, the Manchester United manager does not want to repeat the same mistakes he made when Peter Schmeichel left in 1999.
Ferguson admitted he never properly replaced the great Dane until the arrival of Van der Sar in 2005 and knows he must act quickly to bring in a competent replacement.

And £15million-rated Scotland international Gordon is believed to be high on Ferguson's shortlist of potential signings for next season and has been monitored on several occasions by United officials.
The 28-year-old has 18 months remaining on his existing contract and could potentially leave the Stadium of Light on a free transfer in May 2012, a factor which could force manager Steve Bruce to accept a big offer for the player this summer.

Gordon, who became the most expensive British goalkeeper when Sunderland signed him from Hearts in 2007, has been in outstanding form this term producing arguably the best save of the season so far against Bolton last month.
