Sunderland are aiming for instant promotion back to the Championship after dropping from the Premier League to League One in two shocking seasons.
The Black Cats finished bottom of the pile in the second tier this season with both Simon Grayson and Chris Coleman failing to lift them to safety.
Now without a manager, Sunderland face an uncertain summer ahead with a number of players expected to leave and this is a vitally important transfer window which they need to get right.
Things need to change at The Stadium of Light.
A new owner is coming in, a new manager will arrive soon and a number of their high earners need to be shipped to make sure that they can bring in players capable of getting them promoted from League One.
Here are three players who Sunderland should bring in to ensure they have every chance of winning promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking.
