Potential deal for Ollie Norburn would be another shrewd move for Black Cats

Potential deal for Ollie Norburn would be another shrewd move for Black Cats

Sunderland’s League One campaign got off to a thrilling start as the Black Cat snatched a 2-1 win against Charlton Athletic on Saturday.

Thanks to a Lynden Gooch last-minute header, Jack Ross’ start to his Sunderland tenure began with three points rather than a disappointing draw.

It’s been a busy summer for Sunderland with 11 new players coming into the squad as Stewart Donald and Jack Ross begin their revolution at the club.

Although the club has brought in what amounts to a completely new 11, Sunderland might well be after a few more players over the next few days.

According to HITC, Sunderland have joined the race for Tranmere Rovers midfielder, Ollie Norburn.

The Breakdown

The club has already tasted defeat in their hunt for Mohamed Eisa, and will face an equally tough battle for the talented Norburn who has attracted interest from Shrewsbury and MK Dons.

Norburn joined Tranmere from Macclesfield last summer and was an integral part in the club’s promotion back to League Two.

The midfielder made 42 appearances in the league for the club last year and would be a fantastic signing for Sunderland.

With Lee Cattermole’s future at the club uncertain and Didier Ndong another potential outgoing, signing Norburn seems like an almost essential signing for the Black Cats.

Moreover, selling both the midfielders would free a considerable amount off the wage bill and would also give Sunderland some much-needed transfer money.

After a promising start to the season, signing Ollie Norburn would continue that trend.
