Sunderland have been completely redefined under Jack Ross in the current campaign, with automatic promotion to the Championship and the League One title well within their sights.
The Black Cats will be desperate to enjoy a successful January transfer window by keeping some of their star players at the club and bringing in a few additions of their own. Although, it appears as if one of the club’s youngsters could depart in January, as according to The Chronicle Live, Andrew Nelson is in line for a January loan move.
Andrew Nelson is a candidate for a loan move in January after missing out on either a Sunderland debut or a return to Scottish side Falkirk.
The 21-year-old has returned to training after a long lay-off following surgery on a serious toe problem which has kept him out since the early days of pre-season.
Unfortunately for the youngster, Jack Ross revealed that a lack of cover up front would have seen Nelson handed his Sunderland debut had he been available in the early part of the season.
“The way things have worked out for us in forward areas, he would probably have had opportunities,
“The good thing is that now he is fit it gives us a little bit of time to make that decision, rather than him only getting fit in January.”
Andrew Nelson has plenty of potential and could have easily slotted right into the first-team at the start of the season, but his injury cost him a massive opportunity.
However, with the attacker now returning to full fitness and set to feature for the Under-23s, Ross will be keen to see how he fares ahead of a potential loan move in January.
