Sunderland close in on Joel Lynch transfer
Jack Ross confirmed yesterday:
“I would hope that we will have another central defender in at the beginning of the week, then we are still pursuing a left-back which obviously we need to do before the window closes.
“But the centre-back is pretty much done, there’s just a few logistics to sort but hopefully at the beginning of week, or at least by the end of it.
“He’s [Lynch] the person we are trying to get in and we don’t think there will be any issues with it.
“But, like everything, until everything is done in terms of medicals, you can’t be certain.
“He will give us another body in central defence but he is also vastly experienced at a level higher than this and who will provide strong competition for those in the team and the other centre-backs in the squad.
“Once we get him in, and a left-back, we will have strength in depth all round the pitch which is very important because we know how long the season is.”
