David Edgar could be the final piece in Sunderland’s promotion puzzle

Sunderland have been going strong in League One this season as they continue to chase down an automatic promotion place under Jack Ross. 

The Black Cats have looked rather promising during the first half of the season, but a couple of additions wouldn’t go amiss with a long way to go in the current campaign.

Indeed, the Wearside could really do with bringing in a defender that has the ability to step in and cover for any injuries if things get tough, in what will be a tiring campaign. Ross recently came out and stated that former Newcastle United defender David Edgar will be on trial at the club next week, according to The Chronicle Live.


Edgar is a very experienced defender who has featured for Newcastle United, Burnley, Birmingham City, Huddersfield Town and Sheffield United. He still has plenty of playing days ahead of him at the age of 31, so he would be a good short-term signing for Sunderland, especially on a free transfer.

The Black Cats could do with bringing in another defender to help lighten the load on the back line and to provide cover in the case of injuries.

Jack Ross has a number of young players at his disposal in the current campaign, so the Sunderland boss should think about bringing in an experienced head to help steady the ship.

Of course, in a 46-game League One season that throws all kinds of obstacles at you, signing the experienced Canadian international could just give Ross the final piece in his promotion puzzle at the Stadium of Light, with experience playing a crucial part.

Sunderland fans, should they be looking at Edgar?
