The past two seasons have been hugely disappointing for Sunderland, as they have suffered double relegations.
It is going to be hard for Sunderland to return to the top flight of English football, but the road to the top starts now.
Sunderland have been quite busy this summer, as they have already made some additions to their squad following the appointment of Jack Ross as the manager.
The Black Cats have signed Tom Flanagan, Chris Maguire, Jon McLaughlin and Alim Ozturk so far this summer.
According to The Scottish Sun, Sunderland manager Ross still wants more signings, as the former St. Mirren boss plans to bring in eight to 10 new players in the summer transfer window.
With Sunderland likely to lose some of the best players this summer, it does make sense for the club to bring in new faces, especially footballers who are willing to play in League One and know the division.
