Loads of Sunderland fans have been debating possible free agent signings after the injury to Charlie Wyke, and a whopping 83 per cent of fans think they should try to sign Jerry Mbakogu.

Sunderland had their first major setback of the season last weekend, as their slow starts finally came back to haunt them with a defeat at Burton Albion.

The result was made even worse by an injury to Wyke, who is now expected to 25-year-old goalkeeper.

Plenty of free agent strikers’ names have been tossed about, with veterans like Victor Anichebe, Darren Bent and Gabby Agbonlahor still looking for a place to call home.

The Black Cats are building a fresh new squad though, so targeting an ageing, lazy striker would be a huge mistake.

A move for Mbakogu makes perfect sense, as the 25 year-old free agent is desperate for a move to Leeds.

Once dubbed ‘the next Drogba’ by his agent, Mbakogu scored 28 times in 92 league games for Italian side Carpi, and 83 per cent of fans think Jack Ross should make him an offer he can’t refuse.
