Sunderland are reportedly now keen on signing Nathan Broadhead again for next season.
The Lowdown: ‘Sensational’ season
Broadhead enjoyed a ‘sensational’ season at the Stadium of Light, according to journalist and Black Cats supporter Josh Bunting.
The striker, who was on loan from Everton, scored 13 goals in 27 matches in total over all competitions for Alex Neil’s side, helping them win promotion to the Championship and subsequently earning him a call-up to the Wales national team.
The Latest: Sunderland return for Broadhead?
As per Liverpool World, Sunderland are now ‘keen’ on bringing Broadhead back next term, but they will face competition from Wigan Athletic, who were also promoted to the Championship this year.
However, the Latics are thought to be concerned about his injury record, which saw him miss 18 matches for the Wearside club in the most recent campaign.
The Verdict: No-brainer
Taking Broadhead back to the Stadium of Light, even if it is only on loan again, is surely a no-brainer for Sunderland given his performances and goal record in 2021/22.
Ross Stewart is currently the only recognised senior striker in Neil’s squad at the moment, and given the step up from League One, he will need some extra support up top.
Should Sunderland sign Broadhead?
Everton manager Frank Lampard already has a plethora of forward options at his disposal, so Broadhead may be allowed to go out on loan again in order to further his development.
