Sunderland goalkeeper Alex Bass is due for a medical with AFC Wimbledon today before he signs a season-long loan deal with the League Two club, according to the South London Press,
Bass joined Sunderland from League One outfit Portsmouth last summer on a three-year deal.
But the 25-year-old goalkeeper failed to make any appearances in the Championship last season.
Bass has drawn interest from League Two club AFC Wimbledon this summer and they want to take the player on loan.
Anthony Patterson is Sunderland boss Tony Mowbray’s first-choice goalkeeper and the Black Cats are happy to let Bass leave on loan.
It has been suggested that Wimbledon have agreed a loan deal with Sunderland and Bass is set to undergo a medical today.
The former Portsmouth star has two more years left on his Sunderland contract and will ply his trade under Johnnie Jackson in the upcoming season.
Bass will be determined to put in a good performance for Wimbledon before he returns to the Stadium of Light next summer,

Sunderland are among at least ten clubs monitoring Dutch striker Sydney van Hooijdonk, according to reports. The 72 claims the Black Cats and Southampton are keen on signing the Bologna forward this summer.
The Dutchman, who spent last season on loan at Heerenveen, scored 16 goals in 33 Eredivisie appearances with three more in cup competitions. The Black Cats remain keen on bolstering their attacking options this summer, with Ross Stewart and Luis Hemir Semedo the only senior strikers at the club.
Millwall, Stoke City, and Swansea City have all been credited with an interest in Van Hooijdonk but now the report claims there’s also interest from Premier League sides. The Dutchman is said to have been valued in the region of £10million at the beginning of 2023, but Bologna are reportedly looking to sell.
He’s managed just five appearances in all competitions for the Italian club but is yet to open his goal scoring account. The 23-year-old arrived in Italy in 2021, having scored 23 times in 70 appearances at NAC Breda.
