3 Championship Clubs Lewis Grabban Can Make A Move To Permanently Including The League Leaders

Lewis Grabban cut his loan spell with Sunderland short and has currently returned to his parent club, Bournemouth. His contract with the Cherries is set to end after another 18 months and multiple clubs are sniffing around for a transfer.

Grabban has been in prolific form this season before hitting an injury snag during the Christmas period. He has netted an impressive 12 goals in 20 appearances for the Black Cats this season and was the only attacking threat for the side. However, with the club now rotting at the bottom of EFL Championship table, his decision to opt out of the club always deemed likely.

However, Bournemouth is currently very well equipped in the striker department and might not require the services of Grabban. Players like Jermain Defoe, Callum Wilson, Benik Afobe and Joshua King are getting the job done for Eddie Howe and the club is leaning towards selling Grabban when his value is the highest.

The 29-year-old striker is a versatile presence in the opposition box and is currently on the best form of his life. His Sunderland display will not only earn him a lucrative deal but he can make a major impact while playing for another side.

Three clubs who should consider bringing in Grabban this January :

Aston Villa

The Claret and Blues were left devastated after the ankle injury of last season’s top scorer Jonathan Kodjia. He is not expected to come back anytime soon if at all this season and is causing great concern among the club ranks.

Their £12m forward, Scott Hogan finally started his goal tally in the side’s 5-0 win against Bristol City last week but has mostly struggled to find the back of the net. Steve Bruce ruled out the purchase of Lewis Grabban before and deemed him to be an unrealistic target.

But he can apply for a short loan move with a buyback option and finish the season a strong note.

Leeds United

Pierre-Michel Lasogga’s form in front of goal has been questionable ever since he returned to injury. He has made a few substitute appearances but still looks a bit rusty. With Kemar Roofe mostly fielded in the striker role, the club could do with the quality of Lewis Grabban. Roofe is better suited to appear from the wings even though he has taken on his lone striker role very well. Grabban can finally make the attacking lineup complete with Samuel Saiz behind him and can help the side win promotion through the playoffs of the Championship.


Although the club just bought Rafael Mir from Valencia on a four and a half year deal, Grabban can find himself in the club’s future plans in the Premier League.
