Former Kaiserslautern striker Kacper Przybyłko has been on trial with Sunderland for the last few weeks in a bid to secure himself a contract for Jack Ross’ team.
The 25-year old was released by the Red Devils following their relegation from the Bundesliga 2 and has been on the lookout for a new club right across the summer.
He posted a snap on his Instagram story today of the club badge at the Academy of Light.
No decision has been made yet on the forward, though, and immediately the priority is finding someone capable of immediately stepping in and playing League One football.
Przybyłko, at 6”4, would be an alternative to Charlie Wyke in the event that he did sign, but his poor injury record in the last two years counts against him and he’ll need to prove both his fitness and quality further yet if he is to earn himself a contract with Jack Ross’ side.
His pedigree during his younger years is decent - he represented his country at just about every youth level and played up top for FC Koln in the Bundesliga, also taking in spells with Greuther Fürth and Arminia Bielefeld.
