Sunderland fans have been discussing some possible free agent signings after a devastating setback for Charlie Wyke, but fans don’t like any of the potential replacements.
Sunderland suffered their first defeat of the season at Burton Albion last week, and if truth be told if had been coming.
Jack Ross’ side have been starting games on the back foot, and it was only a matter of time before they got a wake up call.
What could be far more damaging than the result though is the injury to Wyke, who is expected to miss around eight weeks with a knee injury.
Fans have been looking at potential free agent signings to fill the void, and let’s just say they aren’t too appealing.
You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below, where fans are mortified by the possible Wyke replacements…
None of them good enough or fit enough. Would take them a few months to get fit enough to have any impact. By then we will have Wyke back

Would probably take them too long to get up to speed to make it worthwhile
