Micky Gray reacts excitedly on Twitter to potential Sunderland left-back signing

Sunderland Gates

The former Sunderland man has reacted positively to reports linking the Black Cats with a Liverpool defender.

Micky Gray has reacted to suggestions Liverpool left-back Jose Enrique or Marcos Alonso could or should join Sunderland on Twitter with excitement.

Indeed, the former Sunderland man feels both would be good additions at the Stadium of Light in terms of defensive and attacking qualities.

The only question, of course, is whether the Wearside outfit will land either of the defenders. Enrique has been linked with a Liverpool exit for some time.

Liverpool's Enrique, however, has been linked with a move to West Brom by Sky Sports, which could scupper Gray's suggestions.

That said, Alonso could still end up at Sunderland - although there are less concrete links as to whether that will happen.

Sunderland fans have been desperate for owner Ellis Short to provide manager Dick Advocaat with funds to further strengthen their side and, once the deadline passes, the Black Cats will simply have to deal with what they have already got.

Advocaat's men lost their first two Premier League games of the season in embarrassing fashion but bounced back with two creditable draws, although they are yet to win in the league.
