Sunderland are still hopeful of bringing in another striker before the loan window shuts at the end of the month. The Black Cats are short in the position, despite the summer arrivals of Charlie Wyke and Jerome Sinclair. With both currently injured, Josh Maja has been leading the line on his own.
As reported by the Shields Gazette, Sunderland are currently trawling through the Premier League looking for potential recruits.
Well here are three strikers who would be excellent in League One, currently out-of-favour in the Premier League…
Cauley Woodrow – Fulham
The 23-year-old has near zero chance of playing for Fulham this season, considering the attacking threats ahead of him.
Yet, he is a very talented forward. Nine caps and three goals for the England under-21s highlights his pedigree. Previous loan spells at Burton Albion and Bristol City have been reasonably successful. Sunderland would certainly welcome his arrival.
Nahki Wells – Burnley
A slightly more ambitious move this one would be for the Bermudan striker. The 28-year-old has failed to establish himself at Burnley and transfer activity at Turf Moor sees him out of favour completely this season.
The last time he played in League One with Bradford City, he scored 14 goals in 19 games. A tough one to secure, but would be a phenomenal recruit.
Joe Mason – Wolves
The Irishman is back at Wolves after a loan spell at Colorado Rapids. However, he is available for loan with no chance of first-team football for the 27-year-old.
Would offer Sunderland something different to the strikers they already have and would relish rare regular first-team football.
