The Chronicle Live has reported that Premier League new boys Wolves are very keen to sign Sunderland’s Paddy McNair.
After making top signings such as Ruben Neves and Diego Jota, Wolves were able to dominate the Championship throughout the 2017/18 season.
Wolves were top of the table for the majority of the season and they would eventually finish the season in 1st place with an astonishing 99 points.
But now Wolves have finally won promotion to the Premier League after being absent from the top flight of English football since 2012, they need to make sure their squad is of Premier League quality.
Signing McNair would go some way to doing that as he has Premier League experience.
McNair began his career with Premier League giants Manchester United.
The defender played a total of 24 games for United’s U23 side in which he scored five and assisted two.
McNair would then debut for United’s first team in 2014 where he would go on to make 27 appearances.
After which he would be sold to Sunderland in 2016 for a fee of around £4.7 million.
McNair’s time at Sunderland has not exactly been great. McNair missed the majority of the 2016/17 season through injury managing just nine Premier League appearances.
Sunderland were, of course, relegated that season. McNair would start his 2017/18 season with Sunderland in the Championship as he ended his 2016/17 season, injured.
McNair would eventually return to Sunderland’s starting eleven. However, it was too little too late as Sunderland would be relegated from the Championship.
As a result, McNair is looking to leave the Northeast club this summer and while he may have had his injury problems, McNair still has the potential to be a quality player.
