Loads of Sunderland fans have been giving their verdict on the latest transfer news, as reports claim they have lodged a bid for Kieffer Moore.
According to Football Insider, Sunderland have made a £2m bid for Moore, who has scored 13 League One goals for Barnsley this season.
The 6 ft 5 in target man is seen as a replacement for Josh Maja, who is expected to join Bordeaux in the coming days, per Sky Sports.
The Maja deal is worth around £3.5m according to Sky Sports, so it looks like the Black Cats are ready to spend a large chunk of that sum on an immediate replacement.
Moore has bounced around a lot in his career, but has found most of his success in League One, where he has struck 29 goals and six assists in 75 appearances, per Transfermarkt.

The Black Cats are currently third, just four points off league leaders Portsmouth, but they would find it very difficult to keep pace without a proven goalscorer, and Moore has already shown Jack Ross what he can do.
The powerful target man bagged an impressive brace when Barnsley were beaten 4-2 at the Stadium of Light earlier this season, prompting one fan to call him the “best [opposition] performer I’ve seen here this season”.

Please be true 🙇♂️ didn't include him on my picks yesterday as I didn't think they would sell, he was class against us at home, best oppo performer I've seen here this season by a country mile.

Me and my mate said we should put a bid for him when he played against us, he was a nightmare to play against

Moore, Grigg and Wyke upfront would be great in this league with a winger to ease Gooch so not playing every game will be great
