The 29-year-old is without a club following his contract with recently relegated Derby County expiring. He was one of the better players for the Rams last season but made the decision to not sign a new contract.
Given his level of talent it’s not a surprise that several clubs are interest in him, and with no transfer fee to pay, it’s a move that Sunderland should definitely be making.
However, it didn’t work out for him and unlike Pogba he failed to reach the levels many expected. However, at Championship level he’s still more than good enough and was described as “excellent” last season by journalist Ryan Conway.
If they were to capture Morrison too, then the pair could form a scary attacking duo that could propel the Black Cats to success.
Having spent six seasons in League One, a return to the Championship was celebrated massively on Wearside, and the club have no intention of stopping there, with many dreaming of a Premier League return.
21-year-0ld Clarke was directly involved in 14 goals in all competitions last season, that included a loan spell at Sunderland during the second half of the campaign.
The two signings manager Alex Neil has made so far this summer are young players with great potential, so adding Morrison who has experience of playing at every level makes sense.
