Sunderland interest in Premier League star confirmed as deadline day emerges on horizon

Our Sunderland fans here in the Transfer Tavern are pretty happy with how their season has begun under new manager Simon Grayson in the Championship.

The men from the Stadium of Light have had a good year so far with them going unbeaten in their first three games against sides that will surely be up there in terms of the play-off race.

Indeed, Sheffield Wednesday, Derby and Norwich will all be fancying a surge at the top six and so to come out of those games unbeaten – with two away from home – the Black Cats will be feeling good.

Meanwhile, then, it seems as though Grayson is still looking to strengthen his squad before the end of the summer window with Keith Downie on Twitter reporting that he is eager to sign Robert Snodgrass.

The West Ham man has been told that he can leave this summer after a poor spell in east London – a club he only joined in January of this year.

A move back up north could be on the cards, then, though Grayson thinks that the financial situation will have to be looked at closely.

Landlord’s Verdict

Snodgrass is still a good player he just ended up at West Ham at completely the wrong time when you consider their form and their reeling from Dimitri Payet’s exit.

For sure, then, he’d likely be a top player for the Black Cats and so if they can sign him they’ll be doing very well indeed ahead of the rest of the campaign.

Thoughts, Sunderland fans? Let us know below!
