Sunderland could be set to miss out on signing Manchester United striker James Wilson, with the player preferring a move to the Championship rather than League One.
According to the Sunderland Echo, the 22-year-old is keen to make a move into the second tier rather than drop down two divisions, and manager Jack Ross admitted in the report that ‘nothing was close’ in terms of the club pursuing a deal for the forward.
Wilson is set to once again leave Manchester United after enduring a frustrating time at Old Trafford, dropping further and further down the pecking order under manager Jose Mourinho.
However, Wilson has done himself no favours in terms of earning a big move, with a failed loan spell at Sheffield United last year the latest in a string of spells away from Old Trafford that have failed to yield results in terms of goals and appearances.
Wilson has spent time with the likes of Brighton and Derby County, and now with Sunderland interested, it seems inevitable another loan move is on the cards. However, with no other clubs on the radar at the moment, it could be that Wilson is forced to accept a move to the Stadium of Light, where he will be hoping to show his ability and fire the Black Cats into the Championship.
Sunderland fans, what do you think? Should you still go for Wilson? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
