Snapping up Shrewsbury duo would cap off a great transfer window from Donald

Snapping up Shrewsbury duo would cap off a great transfer window from Donald

After a stuttering start to the transfer window, Sunderland have swooped into action in the last few weeks and made a couple of excellent new signings. 

New owner, Stewart Donald has brought in Jerome Sinclair, Charlie Wyke and Luke O’Nien recently to put Sunderland in a great position to start the season.

After missing out on Mohamed Eisa, the addition of Charlie Wyke was vital, and now Jack Ross has a frontman he can rely on for the rest of the season.

While it may seem that the club’s business is finished, the Shropshire Star is reporting that Shrewsbury Town duo, Jon Nolan and Toto Nsiala have both handed in transfer requests. The paper has also stated in the past that Sunderland are interested in signing the duo, although it may be hard to push through a deal for the pair at this late stage.

The Breakdown

The duo were a huge part of in Shrewsbury’s rise in League One and both would be brilliant assets for Sunderland.

While Nsiala might not be top of the club’s list due to the four new defensive signings, Nolan would be an ideal player for Sunderland’s midfield. Even though Ndong is still at the club, the midfielder may well depart this week due to his heavy wages.

Nolan played 43 games last season in League One, scoring nine goals and creating a further six. His experience in the league could be vital for Sunderland as Ross looks to gain promotion.
