The Sunderland supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern are getting anxious as the clock starts to tick louder ahead of the transfer window slamming shut on Monday evening.
Black Cats boss Sam Allardyce is desperately trying to add to his squad as he bids to avoid relegation to the Sky Bet Championship.
Sunderland have won just five games this season and are currently second bottom of the table, four points adrift of safety, so signing players is integral to the manager during this window.
Our landlord here in the Tavern thinks this transfer window is the most important in Sunderland’s history and he doesn’t think the club would be back in a hurry if they were to slip through the trap door at the end of this season.
Here one of the Transfer Tavern’s dedicated writers takes a look at five players Sunderland should try and sign during this transfer window.
