A number of Sunderland fans react to the signing of Chris Maguire from Bury

After two successive relegations, Sunderland have brought in Scotsman Jack Ross to steady the ship and lead their push for promotion back to the Championship next season.

According to The Northern Echo, Ross is set to make his second signing of the summer in the form of Bury striker Chris Maguire.

The 29-year-old has agreed a deal with the Black Cats and is set for a medical on Wearside. Maguire often plays on the right hand side of an attacking three or behind an out-and-out striker. He struggled for goals at Bury last season, scoring just two in 29 matches in all competitions.

However, he proved he could be a prolific scorer by netting 17 for Oxford United in the 2016/17 season and could be a coup for Ross and Sunderland if he can find that form again this year.
