Sunderland: Shrewsbury Town no longer keen on Will Grigg

Sunderland: Shrewsbury Town no longer keen on Will Grigg - Sunderland Transfer Rumours

Sunderland’s League One rivals Shrewsbury Town are no longer interested in making a move for striker Will Grigg.

After moving to the Stadium of Light in January 2019, the former Wigan Athletic striker has had the spotlight firmly on him, seeing his move much documented via Netflix series Sunderland Til I Die.

Featuring regularly for the Black Cats through the 2019/2020 season, Grigg’s form took a nosedive, with just one goal and one assist to his name last term.

Reports claimed earlier this summer that Sunderland were willing to listen to offers for Grigg, who is valued at £1.08m by Transfermarkt, and Shrewsbury Town were reportedly keen.

The Northern Echo, however, have now said that Shrewsbury boss Sam Ricketts is now looking elsewhere to improve his attacking options, having seemingly given up on trying to land Grigg.

The report added that Sunderland officials have received a number of inquiries about the Northern Ireland international but are yet to have a bid presented to them.

Sunderland manager Parkinson will seek to address his attacking options this summer and it remains to be seen if Grigg will stay at the club for next season.

Grigg’s future at the Stadium of Light remains in doubt and it seems highly doubtful if he is the right man to take the club forward and push for an automatic promotion place, given his horrendous fortunes in front of goal in recent months.

If the striker remains with the Wearside club, a drastic change in form will be needed to appease those fans who may have doubts over the current squad.
