Louie Barry (Aston Villa)
We’ve all heard about Louie Barry, the former West Brom youngster who was snapped up by Barcelona. He’s back with Aston Villa now and as he approaches his 18th birthday, it is surely time for him to get some senior action.
He’s unlikely to get that at Villa, so why not Sunderland? The big club mentality will suit him well having been at Barcelona, and his flexibility up top will suit Lee Johnson. He can play as a striker or a winger and would be a big statement signing, albeit on a season-long loan.
