Progress is slow in Sunderland’s pursuit of Everton forward Nathan Broadhead, according to Sunderland Echo journalist James Copley.
The Lowdown: Broadhead’s Sunderland loan
The 24-year-old spent the 2021/22 season on loan with the Black Cats and made 22 appearances for the Wearsiders in League One, impressively netting ten goals during the campaign.
Many Sunderland fans may feel that his overall tally could have been much higher if it weren’t for his serious hamstring injury, which kept him sidelined for 18 matches.
The Latest: Copley’s news
Copley has now revealed the latest development in the Championship club’s pursuit of Broadhead.
Taking to Twitter, the Sunderland Echo journalist claimed: “Understand nothing is imminent regarding Nathan Broadhead to Sunderland. Still interest there following last season but there are other clubs interested in his services.”
The Verdict: Bring him in…
Scoring just under once every other game for the Wearside outfit in 2021/22, Broadhead knows the manager and the squad well, which surely makes this prospective transfer even more appealing for the youngster.
Should Sunderland sign Broadhead?
With Ross Stewart being Neil’s only senior striker at the club, the Everton forward would certainly get the game-time he’s seeking with a move to the Stadium of Light, given the Championship’s hectic schedule.
Therefore, given the two parties’ history with one another, this could be a great move for both club and player.
