Why Sam Allardyce's appointment at Sunderland could be bad news for Sheffield Wednesday

Sunderland Fans

Sheffield Wednesday are reportedly looking at a deal to sign Sunderland striker Danny Graham.

Sam Allardyce's appointment at Sunderland could be bad news for Sheffield Wednesday in their pursuit of Danny Graham. 

HITC Sport ran reports that Wednesday had agreed a deal with Sunderland for the striker, and it was purely down to the player on whether he wanted the move.

Dick Advocaat had clearly deemed the 30-year-old to be surplus to requirements, and it appeared that he had little future at the Stadium of Light.

However, soon after Sunderland and Wednesday reportedly agreed a deal, Advocaat left his post and no transfer has since been sanctioned. 

With Allardyce having inherited the reins on Wearside, the switch has been plunged into doubt, especially as the 60-year-old boss has promised to give everyone in his squad a chance to impress.

Allardyce has spoken in the Chronicle of his desire to assess all of the options in his Sunderland squad, as he looks to find a winning formula, and that has given Graham a reprieve. 

As a result, Wednesday may have to give up on their pursuit of the former Swansea City man, and they may find it more productive to look elsewhere for a potential striking recruit.
