Sunderland Mulling Over A Move For This Aston Villa Star: Ideal For All Parties Involved?

Sunderland are looking forward to shrugging off the disappointment of the last term and make a strong start to the next season, as they prepare to start their journey in the second tier of English football in the next season. The Black Cats are also eyeing a number of players for the next term, as they look to rebuild their side.

The Black Cats have got themselves a new striker already in the form of James Vaughan from Bury and they are now looking to add to the roster again in the summer. This time around, they are looking forward to sign Scottish international Ross McCormack, who has been one of the prime targets for the new manager of Sunderland, Simon Grayson.

Grayson, who has a rich experience of managing a number of sides in the Championship throughout his career so far, is well aware of the abilities of the 30-year-old forward and is eager to avail his services for the next season. The current Sunderland boss also has the experience of managing the Leeds United side under his belt as well, where the Scottish striker was a part of the squad and played for a significant time.

The forward, who is now the part of the Championship side Aston Villa, has played for a number of clubs in the Championship as well as the Scottish Premiership and hence is well aware of the challenges that one has to face throughout the lengthy and excruciating season in the Championship. His previous experience of playing with Grayson can also come in handy in case the player looks to join the Black Cats in the next term.

McCormack has played 22 games for Aston Villa so far and has scored thrice in them. He has also notched up one assist for his club so far. However, last season he fell out with their new manager Steve Bruce, who took over at the Villa Park regarding his absence from training, which reportedly soured things between the two and the player was eventually left to join Nottingham Forest on loan.

However, recent reports are evident of the fact that things have cooled down between the two and the player is back on the club roster, as well as in the plans of Steve Bruce for the forthcoming season.

Sunderland are currently out of firepower, as both their main strikers Fabio Borini and Jermain Defoe have left the side following their relegation in the last season, and are desperately looking to bring in reinforcements for the next term.
