Jack Ross confirms he wants Charlie Wyke at Sunderland

Sunderland are looking to continue their efforts in the transfer market this summer as they look to win promotion from League One.

The Black Cats will want to return to the Championship at the first time of asking and will be feeling a sense of confidence as they head into the upcoming campaign.

Jack Ross, who was appointed as the new manager earlier in the summer, has been active in the transfer market so far, however, he is still keen to bring a few more bodies to the Stadium of Light, including a striker.

One man that has been heavily linked with a move to Wearside is Bradford City’s Charlie Wyke and the Black Cats boss has revealed he is a person high on his wish list.

The Sunderland Echo have stated that the striker is the top target for Ross and the manager admitted that the club have been very patient with their pursuit of the 25-year-old.

“That’s the one we are continuing to pursue,” he told the Sunderland Echo.

“We want to get him, I think that’s well documented, and the club has been very patient in its pursuit although that will have to come to an end one way or another soon – hopefully in our favour.”

The Verdict:

Sunderland are in need of attacking options ahead of the new season and Wyke would certainly be one welcomed addition.

The Black Cats have been chasing the striker for a while, however, they may have suffered an initial setback with an injury concern.

The 25-year-old is proven at the League One level and could help to take Ross’ side back to the Championship at the first time of asking.
