Could Sunderland tempt Dominic Iorfa into move?

Sunderland are firmly in the promotion mix in League One this season, as they sit third in the table and are just three points adrift of leaders Portsmouth.

But manager Jack Ross would surely love one of two additions to this squad in the January transfer window if the board allow it.

One man that should pop up on the Black Cats radar is Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Dominic Iorfa, who would be a great addition at the Stadium of Light.

The 23-year-old has been frozen out of the first team at Molineux and has failed to make a senior appearance for Wolves this season following their promotion to the Premier League.

Iorfa would be a quality addition if he linked up with Sunderland, as he would improve the squad depth in the backline and help aid a promotion push.

 

The former England Under-21 international has pace and power, while he can also slot in at right-back or centre-back.

He could push Sunderland right-back Adam Matthews for a spot in the side if he rediscovered his best form, while also provide cover in the heart of defence.

Iorfa would have to drop down a couple of divisions in a search for regular first-team football, but at his age he still has plenty of time to fulfil his potential and it would be interesting to see if Sunderland have the pulling power to land him.

He is in the final year of his contract at Wolves and his future remains unclear as it stands.
