Not signing George Evans would be a massive blow for Black Cats

It’s a new era for Sunderland and with Jack Ross now at the helm, the fans will be hoping that there might finally be some light on the horizon. 

Jack Ross has been eager to bring in some new players to his squad this summer as he looks to put a halt to Sunderland’s descent down the English leagues.

The club need players who will not only add quality to the squad but also are committed in taking the club back to the Championship. So far Ross has added eight players to his squad but is still on the hunt for a forward, a defender or two and also a midfielder.

Recently, the Chronicle Live reported that the club had agreed a fee for Reading midfielder, George Evans but according to The Northern Echo, Evans has stalled on completing a move to Sunderland as he waits for any potential interest from the Championship.

The Breakdown

With a fee having been agreed, Evans rejecting a move to the club is a huge blow for Ross’ plans.

The Reading man can play in defence or midfield and could’ve been a valuable utility player to the squad.

If the deal can’t be completed, Sunderland could well be trouble for the upcoming season. The club have already lost Joel Asoro, Wahbi Khazri, Paddy McNair and Callum McManaman and need to add some players to their dwindling squad especially in defence and in central midfield.

So Sunderland fans, what do you think about this latest transfer update?
