Sunderland boss Simon Grayson has revealed that he is pleased with the players that he currently has but has not ruled out the possibility of making moves on free agents.
After being relegated from the Premier League last season, the Black Cats have underwent a squad overhaul with ten new faces arriving at the club including three of transfer deadline day. Though clubs now cannot buy or loan players, they are able to sign players who are free agents.
Though the Black Cats did manage to bolster their side during the summer, they failed to land an experienced striker after being linked with Ross McCormack and Jordan Rhodes.
Grayson has now revealed that there have been agents who have been in contact with him and did say that signing free agents is not out of the question.
He said, “We’re going to have strength in depth with Duncan Watmore coming back and Paddy McNair and Josh Maja sooner or later so the strength in depth is better than before the window shut.
“We’ve got players now who want to be here and hopefully they’ll do whatever’s required to get results. I’m not going to say there won’t be targets still out there who are available to sign because we’d be foolish not to look at that.
“Since the window shut I’ve had agents ringing me and texting me to say they’ve got this, that and the other available who’d like to play for Sunderland but it’s about seeing what we’ve got as a squad and what money’s left in the budget.”
