Sunderland: Danny Graham returns edges closer as deal agreed

Sunderland: Danny Graham returns edges closer as deal agreed - Sunderland Transfer Rumours

Sunderland have agreed a deal for striker Danny Graham to return to the club this summer, according to Football Insider.

Black Cats manager Phil Parkinson has been seeking to bolster his attacking options after failing to gain automatic promotion or even a play-off place last season.

Linked with a return to Sunderland, Graham left Championship side Blackburn this summer after his contract expired at Ewood Park.

The experienced striker, who is valued at £428,000 by Transfermarkt, has 170 career goals to his name but only netted one goal in 42 appearances for Sunderland between 2013 and 2016.

A Sunderland source has told Football Insider that the terms of a one-year deal have now been agreed with Graham and he is set to sign on the dotted line.

Graham will join the likes of Will Grigg and Charlie Wyke among Parkinson’s attacking options and could feature this coming Saturday as the Black Cats begin their League One campaign against Bristol Rovers.

While a deal for Graham looks set to materialise, question marks over such a move may linger in the minds of some Sunderland fans who watched the striker endure a poor spell at the club previously.

A reliable centre-forward is needed this season if the Black Cats are to go up, with Grigg and Wyke managing only nine goals between them last term.
