3 PL Destinations For This Sunderland Flop With 3 English Caps Including Newcastle United

Struggling at the bottom of the Championship points table, Sunderland are set to be one of the busiest clubs in the current transfer window. While Chris Coleman will be desperate to add quality to his first team, he will also look to get rid of deadwood in the squad and one player now put up on sale is midfielder Jack Rodwell.

Along with the likes of Didier Ndong and Lamine Kone, Rodwell, who is currently the highest earner at the club, is one of the many players that have failed to cement a place in the starting XI. He has made just one start this season and it is now understood that Sunderland will allow him to leave on a free if he is ready to waiver the wages of the rest of his contract, that has 18 months left on it.

If Rodwell decides to move on, he will be a free agent this month and can sign for any club. He has 3 international caps for England and at just 26, is a decent bet for the best clubs in the country. Here are three Premier League outfits that should look to snap him up.

Newcastle United:

The Magpies are looking for a midfielder, who can add dynamism their midfield, that has failed to impress this season. The likes of Jonjo Shelvey. Mikel Merino, Mohamed Diame and Issac Hayden have all not been consistent and Rodwell could be a good bet for Rafa. Coming in for free, with loads of English experience, he is definitely a risk worth taking and could solve the midfield problem at the club for the long-term, if he comes good.

West Ham United:

The Hammers are another club that are in desperate search of midfielders this January transfer window. Mark Noble is no longer the engine of the side while the likes of Pedro Obiang and Edimilson Fernandes have not done well enough to cement a place in the first team. Chiekhou Kouyate has been effective but needs a stable and effective partner in the midfield and the Sunderland man has every attribute that will make him a hit under David Moyes. Surely, he is a player West Ham should look to sign.


The 26-year old was a part of the academy at Everton and though he failed to impress at Goodison Park before, could be effective under their new manager Sam Allardyce. Having worked under him before, Rodwell should not take too long to adjust to the conditions at Everton and with the likes of Morgan Schneiderlin and Tom Davies struggling, Rodwell, on a free transfer, is a decent acquisition for the Toffees.
