‘Make him captain’ – Sunderland fans would love to see this former midfielder return to Wearside

Sunderland fans in the Transfer Tavern have been readying themselves for life in League 1 next season as Jack Ross looks to rebuild their squad.

Ross has been linked with a number of different signings recently, but one in particular has been pleasing the Black Cats fans on Twitter.

TEAMtalk have reported that ex-Sunderland midfielder Grant Leadbitter is in talks to return to the club he spent seven years with between 2002 and 2009. The Englishman made 111 appearances for Sunderland, scoring 11 goals during that time.

The 32-year-old made 32 appearances in the Championship for Middlesbrough last season, chipping in with three goals and one assist. It seems as though he would be willing to drop down to League One in order to rejoin the Black Cats.

Sunderland fans on Twitter have been expressing their excitement with the potential deal.
