The 22-year-old striker - who had had loan spells at Brighton and Hove Albion, Derby County and Sheffield United in recent years - is claimed to be available on loan this summer.
Good signing for Sunderland?
Wilson is a very talented and promising young striker, and the performances of the 22-year-old for Brighton, Derby and United were quite encouraging.
With the former England Under-21 international striker having proved himself in the Championship, it is safe to say that the youngster will have no problems in adapting to League One.
Sunderland do need another striker this season, as Jack Ross’s side aim to win automatic promotion from League One to the Championship, and Wilson would be a smart signing for the Black Cats.
