According to The Sun, Sunderland manager David Moyes wants to bring in Peter Crouch and partner him with Jermain Defoe at the club in January.
The news has certainly been welcomed by our resident Black Cats fans here in the Transfer Tavern, with the two strikers having previously forged a successful partnership for the likes of Tottenham and Portsmouth.
It’d be the classic plan of little and large for the north east club up top with them looking to get out of the relegation zone after a recent upturn in form.
After winning their first game of the season against Bournemouth they followed it up with a convincing victory against Hull City at the weekend with Defoe hitting his 150th Premier League goal.
It was a moment to remember for the Englishman as his strike partner Victor Anichebe also found the net and that is who Crouch will have to compete with if he is to start up front from January.
The lanky forward has found playing time hard to come by this season so far for Stoke and would likely be tempted to move to the Stadium of Light in a bid to earn more games before the end of his career.
