Tommy Elphick has been out of favour at Villa Park for a long time now, and has been linked with a move to the Stadium of Light in the past.
This summer, Jack Ross would be smart to revisit that deal, and make sure it gets done this time.
Whilst Elphick is a misfit amongst the Villans, at 30-years-old he still has a good couple of years left in him, and he remains more than capable of shining at League One level.
Leaving Villa behind would be the best thing for Elphick now, and a move to Sunderland would put him back in the frame for first team football again.
