3 Sunderland players who’d be perfect for Newcastle’s promotion push



Newcastle United are flying high in the Championship and look set to cruise to the Championship title.

It seems like people are already discussing how many points Newcastle will win the league by rather than whether they’ll be promoted.

And while that sounds dangerously complacent, it is hard to look past them when considering who will become champions of the second tier.

Newcastle, under the guidance of experienced Spaniard Rafael Benitez, look set to bounce straight back to the Premier League and return a better, more organised and more confident outfit when they get back.

North East rivals Sunderland – on the other hand – have had a terrible start to the season and while they have picked up recently with back-to-back wins, they are still being widely tipped for relegation.

It seems as if a North East switch is inevitable and some players might be tempted to cross the divide for their long-term Premier League future.

This is what Jack Colback did and others might follow in his footsteps; here are 3 who would be ideal captures for Newcastle.
