Sunderland are interested in Manchester United striker James Wilson, according to the Yorkshire Post. 

The loan window remains open until the end of August and the Black Cats are still keen on bringing in another striker.

The League One side are now targeting a loan move for James Wilson. The 22-year-old is open to a loan move away from Manchester United to get more first-team experience and fitness under his belt.

Wilson started his career at United and rose through the youth ranks at Old Trafford. He has played 20 games for their first-team in all competitions so far in his career and has chipped in with 4 goals for the Red Devils.

He has also enjoyed loan spells in his career. Wilson’s first stint was with Brighton and Hove Albion in the 2015/16 season and he played 27 games for the Seagulls and scored 5 goals.

He then had a brief spell at Derby County in the next season but his time at Pride Park was cut short by injury after playing just 4 games. Wilson then spent the latter part of the last campaign on loan to Championship side Sheffield United.

With his chances at Manchester United seemingly limited, a loan move to Sunderland would be ideal for James Wilson. He can get his career back on track in League One and fire the goals to get them back to the Championship this season. He would be a real asset for the Black Cats and is a loan signing they should go all out for.
