Sunderland need Nathan Broadhead for next season

Amidst the expiry of his loan spell at Sunderland the end of the season, Nathan Broadhead will head back to parent club Everton.

Though he will be entering the final year of his contract with the Merseyside outfit and at the age of 24, does not stand much of a chance of making Lampard’s first team on a regular basis.

His impact at Sunderland this season has been nothing short of mesmeric, despite the fact that he missed 101 days of action in the form of 18 games with a hamstring injury.

Should Neil sign Broadhead permanently?

Having played 20 games in the standard League One season, the Welshman has registered ten goals meaning that he has scored a goal every other game for the Black Cats and helped massively in their journey to the League One play-off final.

Since his return from injury he has scored five goals in seven fixtures, and as a result of a position change into the role of centre-forward, the 24-year-old has endured his best goal scoring season as a professional.

On the chalkboard

As such, Alex Neil should be looking to sign the 13-cap Wales U21 international on a permanent deal, ready for next season.

In just 20 appearances, he has asserted himself as Sunderland’s second highest goalscorer this season behind the goal machine that is Ross Stewart who has struck 24 times in the standard League One season.

Who scored the club's first goal of 2021?

The Scot is another player whose future at the club is surrounded by uncertainty and with the Black Cats blessed with a chance to climb back up to England’s second-tier, you get the impression that the result of their promotion bid will determine the future of both assets.

Dubbed “outstanding” by Clinton Morrison, Broadhead’s versatility in attack, as well as his recent ability to score goals, makes him an absolute bargain for the Stadium of Light side, with the Welshman rated at around £450k as per Transfermarkt.

With the forward entering the final year of his contract upon his return to Everton, Sunderland may well get him for a cut-price and should do so as soon as possible.
