The Royals have put winger Hunt, 27, and Doyle, 25, up for sale after their play-off failure. Striker Doyle, available for �6.5m, has already held talks with Wolves and is due to meet with Fulham this week.

New Black Cats boss Steve Bruce is a confirmed fan of Hunt after trying to sign him for Wigan last year.

Bruce also wants to sign another hitman after Djibril Cisse's loan ended.
