Graham wanted by Championship sides - Three possibilities

Sheffield Wednesday, Derby County and Watford could be interested in signing Sunderland's Danny Graham.

Sunderland manager Gus Poyet says that Danny Graham is still of interest to a number of Championship clubs, despite no move materialising yet.

Graham has been seeking a loan move away from the Stadium of Light for some time, but no transfer has been concluded.

Poyet did suggest that this was not due to a lack of interest, though, and the Black Cats boss believes that Graham could move to one of a number of second-tier clubs soon.

“There are plenty of Championship clubs looking at him. Plenty," Poyet told the Chronicle.

In this piece we take a look at three teams who could be potential suitors for the 29-year-old striker.

Sheffield Wednesday 

The Owls have struggled for goals all season and are desperately looking for a new striker to help lead their line.

Wednesday have scored just 12 times in 16 games this season and that simply isn't conducive to success.

Owls boss Stuart Gray has suggested that they are on the hunt for loan additions this week and they could do worse than taking a look at Graham. 

Derby County

The Rams may have one in-form striker, but their lack of quality beyond Chris Martin could be a potential problem. 

Martin has 10 goals to his name and leads the Championship scoring charts, but Steve McClaren's men have a lack of quality in reserve.

Leon Best has struggled since a loan move in the summer, failing to hit the back of the net in 12 appearances for the side, and another striker could be on McClaren's wishlist. 


Although Watford have one of the most potent forward lines in the division, they are the club that know the most about Graham's quality.

The target-man centre-forward made his name at Vicarage Road and if they could rekindle him back to his best then it would be a great coup, to add further quality to a strong attacking unit.
