Former Sunderland striker Andrew Nelson has revealed his desire to return to the club one day during an interview with Roker Report.
Nelson left Sunderland in a permanent deal in January, moving to Scottish Premiership side Dundee. And he is already impressing north of the border.
The 21-year-old scored four goals in six games before suffering an injury in mid-February. He is looking to get his career on track with Dundee.
Many believed that this was the year for Nelson’s Sunderland breakthrough but injury held him back at the start of the season.
Despite a prolific loan spell at non-league Darlington, the Black Cats let their academy graduate leave on a permanent deal.
But Nelson does not resent their decision and he would love to return to The Stadium of Light in the future, once he has completed his project at Dundee.
Nelson told Roker Report: “I have to repay Dundee for the faith they’ve shown and they’ve taken the chance on me and are playing me – I am concentrated on Dundee for the next two years, that’s all my focus is. But maybe one day if I’m lucky enough to get a chance to come back, I think of course I would.”
The young striker certainly has the potential to become a successful striker in the English leagues and the Scottish Premiership is the perfect learning curve for him.
