Sunderland have struggled so far this season and find themselves rooted to the bottom of the Championship table, but since appointing Chris Coleman their form has had a bit of an upturn as they, at last, won a home game against Fulham and have since backed that victory up with a draw against Birmingham City and another victory against Nottingham Forest.
Despite a few good results, manager Chris Coleman will be looking to improve the squad and bring in his own players this month to give the club every opportunity of staying in the Championship.
With that in mind, the club should look to sign goalkeeper Danny Ward and striker James Wilson.
Danny Ward – The Liverpool shot-stopper has experience in the Championship, as he helped Huddersfield to get promotion to the Premier League last season, but returned to Anfield in the summer as he was expected to challenge Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius for the number one jersey but has struggled for game time so far this term.
Even though reports suggested that Ward had snubbed the chance to be reunited with Coleman last month, after struggling for game time for Liverpool he may reconsider his options this month.
James Wilson – The Manchester United striker has been returning from injury, playing for the u-23 side to improve his match fitness. With first-team opportunities limited as he is behind the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford in the pecking order, Wilson may also look for a temporary move away this month.
Having had previous Championship experience with both Brighton and Derby County respectively, the striker knows the demands of the league and could prove to be a good loan signing for the club.
