Reports from the Shields Gazette have revealed that Sunderland’s move for Aston Villa flop Ross McCormack is currently hanging in the balance.
The two clubs are apparently very far apart in terms of the financial arrangement of the loan deal with Villa wanting most of the Scot’s wages to be covered by Sunderland.
Surprisingly, Ross McCormack has made little to no impact during his time at Villa park since his £12 million arrival last summer.
The 31-year-old has scored just four league goals in 27 games for Steve Bruce’s side despite being a lethal forward for both Fulham and Leeds in the past.
Time is running out for Grayson to get his man with the transfer deadline mere hours away.
At this point, Sunderland need to bite the bullet and send an offer Bruce’s way that will get this deal done and dusted.
Forgetting his poor form at Villa Park last season, Ross McCormack is one of the best strikers at this level and can pretty much guarantee goals for the Black Cats.
With Lewis Grabban the only Sunderland striker to have a league goal to his name this season, Sunderland need to strengthen their attacking options or else they could be in trouble.
What do you think Black Cats? Should Grayson bite the bullet and pay the wages? Let us know in the comments down below!
