Northern Irish striker linked to Wearside.
Northern Ireland striker Kyle Lafferty is being tipped with a move to Sunderland from Scottish Premiership club Hearts.
Lafferty formally of Norwich City,Rangers and Burnley is being lined up by the Black Cats who only have two senior strikers at the club in the form of Josh Maja and Joel Asoro who are both only aged 18.
Following the departure of James Vaughan to Wigan Athletic and Lewis Grabban cutting his loan spell short the North East side are desperate to add options in attack.
Lafferty who was the key figure in Hearts ending Celtic’s 69 game unbeaten domestic run to an end could add yet another club to his seemingly never ending list . Coleman is said to be a big fan of the man from Enniskillen.
He has scored 7 goals in 21 games so far this season for Hearts and is settled in Scotland but a move to Sunderland could tempt him with a better calibre of football on show in the Sky Bet Championship.
Coleman also confirmed on Thursday night his second signing of the window Brighton winger Kazenga Lua Lua has linked up with the club.
Lua Lua is a very good signing as he has the attributes needed in the division to succeed with his pace and this is exactly what the Red and White need in attack.
Lua Lua who started his career at rivals Newcastle United will have to start well with the Black Cats due to the pressure on his young shoulders.
He has plenty of goal scoring experience in the league so he should be one that the players around him should be looking to supply with clear cut chances as he wowed the Amex on many occasions with his finishing.
Other Sunderland targets being dished around are Ben Marshall from Wolverhampton Wanderers, Andy Lonergan from Leeds the goalkeeper looks set for the Stadium of light in a deal that will send Aiden McGeady the other way and Chris Martin from Derby County.
If Coleman signs all his targets mentioned the club should have no problem in staying up in the relegation dogfight.
