Sun­der­land set to sign Max to boost mid­field ranks

Sunderland Echo - - Front page - By Phil Smith @Phil__Smith

Wi­gan Ath­letic mid­fielder Max Power is set to be­come Sun­der­land’s twelfth sum­mer sign­ing to­day.

The 25-year-old has been iden­ti­fied by Jack Ross as a player who can add en­ergy and ex­pe­ri­ence to Sun­der­land’s mid­field.

Power has over 100 league games un­der his belt for both the Lat­ics and Tran­mere Rovers.

Sun­der­land moved close to a deal on Thurs­day af­ter Paul Cook’s side signed mid­fielder Josh Win­dass from Rangers.

They are also ex­pected to sign Lee Evans, an­other cen­tral mid­fielder, from Sh­effield United.

That paved the way for Power’s exit but the de­vel­op­ments came too late for the Black Cats to seal a deal in­side the per­ma­nent win­dow.

In­stead, they will sign a loan deal with a pur­chase clause in the coming days.

The loan win­dow will re­main open un­til the end of the month, with Ross still look­ing for an­other sign­ing to bol­ster his attack.
