We could have done with another striker in, and few obvious suspects out, and can only hope loan deals are in the pipeline for such movement.
For now, Salut! Sunderland welcomes the 12th signing off the summer, Max Power on loan from Wigan until January with a view to sealing a permanent transfer in the new year.
This, trimmed a little, is how safc.com announced the deal:
‘The midfielder has made over 140 appearances for Wigan during a three-year spell, during which he helped the Latics win two Sky Bet League One titles.
Jack Ross said: ‘We wanted another midfielder in the squad and we wanted one who was a little bit different to what we already have. Max gives us a little bit more of a presence physically – box to box – and gives us more balance within the squad. He’s got very recent experience when it comes to winning and being successful in this league and knows what it takes to get out of it.’
