Jack Ross not interested in move for Aston Villa striker Ross McCormack

Jack Ross not interested in move for Aston Villa striker Ross McCormack

Although the transfer deadline has closed for Premier League teams, EFL clubs can still make loan moves until the end of the month and Sunderland could well be interested in making another deal.

This summer, the Black Cats lost Joel Asoro to Swansea and at one point only had fellow academy graduate Josh Maja to play up front.

Towards the end of the transfer deadline, however, Stewart Donald managed to bring in Jerome Sinclair and former Bradford City striker, Charlie Wyke.

The club are still on the look out for a striker and had been linked with a move for Aston Villa forward, Ross McCormack but according to the Chronicle Live, Sunderland are now unlikely to move for the striker.

The Breakdown

Aston Villa are apparently looking to get Ross McCormack off their wage bill following his fall out with Steve Bruce.

The forward is only halfway through his four-year contract and was loaned out to Melbourne City last season where he scored 14 goals in 17 games.

With Wyke and Sinclair still injured, Ross is after another forward to bolster his attacking options but apparently is looking for a young raw striker rather than a proven league performer.

Sunderland need another forward as they can’t rely on Josh Maja to be their sole striker for the next few weeks.

While McCormack may not be the one for the club, Jack Ross needs to utilise the loan market to help his squad and add some depth up front.

So Sunderland fans, what do you think?
