Sunderland Receive Boost In Transfer Pursuit

Sunderland have received a huge boost ahead of the January transfer window, with Manchester United agreeing to let Amad Diallo leave on loan next month. The 21-year-old has missed the entire season thus far due to a knee injury sustained during pre-season. Following an outstanding loan period at the Stadium of Light, where he scored 14 goals and won the club’s Young Player of the Year, he was anticipated to be given his chance at Old Trafford this season.

The attacker developed a strong bond with Sunderland fans, who have made no secret of their desire to see him return to the club. Amad has previously remarked that if Erik ten Hag decides to cast another temporary spell, he would prefer to return to Wearside.

According to games Insider, the Dutchman has decided to let the Ivory Coast international to leave the Theatre of Dreams for his third loan term in order for him to play regular first-team games.

Writer’s View

Sunderland have made no secret of their desire to bring Amad Diallo back to the Stadium of Light, and fans would be happy to see him return. However, Tony Mowbray’s resignation and the entrance of Michael Beale could influence the decision.

It’s unclear whether the ex-QPR manager is as big an admirer of the player as his predecessor, but he didn’t get off to the ideal start yesterday as his side was thrashed by Coventry City. Despite a change in personnel, Sunderland’s interest is expected to stay.
