2 in, 1 out: The Sunderland January transfer business that could happen



With Sunderland continuing to compete at the top end of League One, the January transfer window increases in importance. 

This month gives the Black Cats an opportunity to strengthen their promotion bid and try and break their third-tier curse.

Despite being in the early stages of the window, a lot of transfer talk has come from Wearside.

Here, we take a look at some of the transfer business that could happen at Sunderland this month…

Won the EFL Trophy?

In: Trai Hume

Full-backs were an area targeted for recruitment in the summer, and it appears that the same could be said this January.

According to Football Insider, the Black Cats are edging closer to the signing of Linfield right-back Trai Hume.

The 19-year-old has also attracted interest from League One counterparts Lincoln City, however, the young full-back went to the Stadium of Light last week to watch Sunderland thrash Sheffield Wednesday.

The report also states that Sunderland have submitted a bid in the excess of £200,000 for the right-back’s services.

In: Jack Diamond 

Jack Diamond could be recalled from his loan spell with Harrogate Town this month, as per a report from the Northern Echo.

The exciting winger has been an important source of creativity and excitement in a Harrogate shirt this season, but he could be brought back to strengthen the squad in Wearside.

The report says that Josh Hawkes could also be brought back to the Stadium of Light this January, with the 22-year-old currently impressing on loan with Tranmere Rovers.

Out: Frederik Alves

Frederik Alves has not seen the game time that he would have liked to see this season, with this view more than likely shared by his parent club, West Ham.

The 22-year-old has accumulated just 44 minutes of League One football this season, chipping in with rare appearances in the Cup competitions.

It would be no surprise to see Alves recalled by the Premier League club and sent to another third-tier club where the competition levels at centre-back are not as high.
