Sunderland have been extremely busy during the transfer window in strengthen their squad for the upcoming League One campaign and it appears they are far from done just yet.
The Black Cats have already added the likes of Jon McLaughlin, Tom Flanagan, Alim Ozturk, Reece James, Dylan McGeouch and Chris Maguire to the Stadium of Light, as Jack Ross prepares for a new era in the north-east.
However, it is believed that the former St. Mirren boss is keen on adding more faces to his new side and is looking to use his knowledge of Scottish football as a means to bolster his squad.
The winger, who has featured for Northern Ireland, had an impressive year in Scotland last season and saw interest from Rangers, however, he remained at Rugby Park.
Now, Ross is considering a swoop to take the 23-year-old to Wearside, with the player having spent time in the north-east as a youngster with Middlesbrough.
The pacy winger would be a quality signing for Sunderland this summer if they can convince him to come back south of the border.
The Northern Irishman would give the Black Cats an added attacking threat going forward as he can play on both wings and he looks to have a bright future ahead of him.
He would also become a natural replacement for Callum McMananaman following his departure and would make a whole lot of sense for Sunderland to sign.
