Sunderland have been rather impressive throughout the current campaign, but a slight consistency issue has crept into proceedings in recent times.
The Black Cats certainly made the most of the summer transfer window as they secured a number of players, including the likes of Dylan McGeouch, Tom Flanagan and Max Power on loan.
However, the January transfer window will be even more crucial as they’ll need to bring in a couple of quality players in an attempt to boost their promotion push. Indeed, Stewart Donald will play a key part in securing transfer deals, with a striker and a winger possibly on his radar at this moment in time.
With that in mind, Donald can fire Sunderland into the Championship if he lands this DUO…
Will Grigg has had to settle for a place on the substitutes’ bench in recent times as he continues to struggle at the DW Stadium. The Northern Ireland Ireland international has scored 83 goals in his last four seasons at League One level, including 19 as Wigan Athletic won the division as recently as May.
So, with Sunderland chasing down promotion and Josh Maja’s future surrounded with doubt, Grigg’s experience and goalscoring ability could easily fire them straight back into the Championship.
Ben Woodburn is currently back at his parent club Liverpool after a failed loan spell at Championship side Sheffield United during the first half of the season.
Sunderland already have the likes of Aiden McGeady and Lynden Gooch excelling in wide areas, but they could really do with bringing in reinforcements in what will be a long, tiring season.
The Wales international has plenty of potential and has shown that he can deliver quality performances in the Premier League, so he could be a dangerous option to have in your side in League One.
