The Latest: Dajaku update
Taking to Twitter, The Chronicle journalist Hunter shared an update on Dajaku, saying that he is ‘expected’ to be back on Wearside on Monday.
The Union Berlin loanee has been suffering from illness, but now it looks like he could make a swift recovery in time for the play-offs, should they get there.
The Verdict: Big boost
The fact that Dajaku could play a part in the play-offs is certainly a big boost for the Stadium of Light faithful.
On top of his four goals and three assists in the league, he has picked up one man-of-the-match award, and also ranks highly among his teammates in terms of average shots, dribbles and crosses per match (WhoScored).
Nonetheless, his creativity and flair could be the difference for the Black Cats as they look to chase promotion back up to the Championship.
