Reports: Championship Clubs Set Sights On Cats Striker

Stu Forster

Who is the answer to Sunderland's goalscoring problems? Not this man, apparently.

Danny Graham could be set for a second loan spell of the season, with plenty of Championship clubs reportedly ready to try and tempt the striker to take the step down.

There were threats suggestions last week from the Hull end - where Graham has spent the season so far on loan - that they could be prepared to send him back to Sunderland having spent heavily on a pair of new strikers this month. Those reports were later brushed aside by Steve Bruce, but he tends to play the transfers game a lot more cleverly than most.

The Mirror claim that Bolton Wanderers are targeting a loan deal for the former-Swansea man, which seems an unlikely scenario since Bolton are apparently a bit potless these days. The Mail, meanwhile, insist Nottingham Forest is the likeliest destination. That makes a bit more sense.

It's tough to really judge Graham based on his Sunderland career. He was an unwelcome (by most) signing at the worst possible time, arrived unfit, was thrown into a team containing about as much guile as a can of spam, and was systematically stripped of his confidence.

That confidence hasn't been improved at Hull either, so perhaps stepping back down a level, where his record is excellent, for a while would be the best idea for all.
