According to The Chronicle, Sunderland are set to secure the services of Willis on a free transfer.
The 24-year-old defender is a free agent at the moment, having parted company with Coventry City at the end of last season.
MacAnthony has given his take on the Black Cats’ reportedly imminent one for the 24-year-old, and the Peterborough chairman believes that the central defender will be a success at the Stadium of Light.
Should be Ken, knows the league well, was captain at Cov for period of time and can play CB/RB https://t.co/avBQqqvuH9— Darragh MacAnthony (@DMAC102) July 13, 2019
Good signing for Sunderland?
Willis had been on the books of Coventry his entire career until now, and the 24-year-old is hugely experienced at the lower league levels.
Sunderland need young and energetic players in their squad, and Willis will enhance the quality of Jack Ross’s side for the 2019-20 campaign in which they will be aiming to finish in the top two of the League One table.
