At the time of writing Sunderland look set to part ways with James Vaughan, the second causality of their of their forward line this transfer window after Lewis Grabban returned to his parent club Bournemouth.
Vaughan, who has struggled on Wearside scoring just twice, is set to move to League One leaders Wigan and leaves Sunderland with two first team strikers, both of whom are just 18-years-old (Joel Asoro and Josh Maja) .
Chris Coleman will be scouring free transfers and loan signings as to not worsen Sunderland’s ailing funds.
Robbie Keane who has been touted with a return to Wolves this January, could be a viable option to add balance to the Black Cat’s youthful attack.
Keane, who has been linked with a move to the Stadium of Light several times in his career could finally make the move to Wearside at the age of 37, as potential suitors Wolves seem to be looking elsewhere in the form of the aforementioned Grabban and AC Milan’s Andre Silva.
Burnley’s Jon Walters is another name mentioned to join up with the Championship’s bottom side, but Sunderland will need reinforcements in what is likely to be an agonising slog for safety in the second half of the season.
Ireland’s record goal-scorer could certainly fit the mould on a short-term deal, both as playing personnel and to inject some morale in a dressing room seriously lacking in self-belief.
