  • It’s set to be a very busy summer at Sunderland, as the club continues to search for a new head coach, which is the obvious priority right now.

    However, recruitment is also going to be massive for the Black Cats, and we know that it’s not just the head coach that has a say when it comes to who is brought in at the Stadium of Light.

    The strategy at Sunderland is clear to see, with the club generally targeting younger players, and they’ve also shown they will cash in on players at the right time. Therefore, there is an expectation that some star men will move on, with doubts around the future of Anthony Patterson and Jack Clarke in particular.

    But, it won’t all be about outgoings, as the past few months have shown that several areas need strengthening, and one man who fits the bill for Sunderland is Japhet Tanganga.

    The 25-year-old came through the ranks at Spurs, and he has gone on to make 50 appearances for the north London outfit in several defensive positions.

    But, with Ange Postecoglou in place at Spurs, he decided that Tanganga had no future with the club, so he joined Augsburg on loan, but a combination of injuries and other factors meant he didn’t play, so he returned to the UK in January.

    Then, another move was sorted, with Tanganga joining Millwall, and it’s fair to say it’s one that worked out for the Lions and the player.

    Tanganga has made 18 appearances in the past few months, and, like many of his teammates, he has gone up a level since Neil Harris’ arrival.
