Sunderland want to re-sign former Bolton Wanderers, Peterborough United and Charlton Athletic ‘keeper

According to a report from Football Insider, Sunderland are keen to re-sign goalkeeper Ben Alnwick, after it was confirmed that he had departed fellow League One side Bolton Wanderers earlier this week.

Earlier this week, it was confirmed that 32-year-old goalkeeper Ben Alnwick had departed League One side Bolton Wanderers after making no league appearances so far this season. Now, with the second half of the season ahead, Alnwick will be keen to find a new club sooner rather than later.

Sunderland are in the market for some new faces in the upcoming January transfer window with manager Phil Parkinson keen to strengthen and put his own mark on the Black Cats’ squad as pressure continues to mount on his shoulders after a poor start to his time at the Stadium of Light.

One player rumoured to be on his radar is the recently released Alnwick, who previously spent two and a half years with Sunderland at the very beginning of his career. He played 20 times for the club before leaving to join Spurs in January 2007. During his time at Spurs, Alnwick had stints out on loan with Luton Town, Leicester City, Carlisle United, Norwich City, Leeds United, Doncaster Rovers and Leyton Orient before leaving Spurs on a free transfer in 2012, joining Barnsley.

Over the course of the next two years, Alnwick went on to play for the Tykes, Charlton Athletic and Leyton Orient once again before joining Peterborough United in 2016. He spent two years with the Posh, playing almost 100 times prior to signing for Bolton, making 95 appearances before his departure earlier this week.
