Sunderland fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to speculation linking the club with a move for Manchester United striker James Wilson.

According to The Sunderland Echo, Sunderland are interested in signing Wilson on a season-long loan deal from Premier League giants United in the summer transfer window.

The Black Cats are playing in League One this season after getting relegated from the Championship at the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

 

Wilson, who has had loan spells at Brighton and Hove Albion, Derby County and Sheffield United in recent years - is reported to be available on loan this summer.

Sunderland manager Jack Ross has admitted to The Chronicle that he has looked at the 22-year-old, but he has stated that the Black Cats are not close to securing a deal.

The former England Under-21 international - who earns £20,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com - would be a good signing for Sunderland and would score goals for Ross's team in League One.

Fans of Sheffield United have also given his take on Wilson’s potential move to Sunderland on loan this summer.

The 22-year-old striker joined the Blades on loan from United in the January transfer window, and was able to score just one goal in 317 minutes of Championship football, according to WhoScored.
