Joining Sunderland would attract Rotherham United midfielder Matt Crooks, according to Steve Howey.
The Millers midfielder offers a lot of versatility as he is comfortable playing both a defensive midfield role, as well as further forward. Last season he found the back of the net on seven occasions, as well as laying on three assists for his teammates.
Crooks is hot property this summer with a number of clubs interested in his signature. According to the Rotherham Advertiser, Rotherham want a seven-figure sum for their prized asset and despite a lot of interest in the player, Howey reckons Sunderland would be an attractive proposition for the 27-year-old.
“If there’s one thing that Sunderland have got going for them, fair enough, they might be paying fortunes, but they’ve got a magnificent stadium, fantastic fans and to play at the Stadium of Light in a packed house, which could be what it’s going to be, you know, that for me would certainly be a turn on, if you want to look at that”.
Facing another season in League One, Sunderland will be looking to get their recruitment spot-on this summer to help mount a serious promotion push, with Howey reckoning that if the Black Cats could get a couple of quality players through the door, it could be the start of something special.
“You know for a fact, you could be at the start of something which could be an amazing journey for someone to progress on if you just get a couple of quality players in”.
