Typically, as the season now draws to a close, with just two home games remaining, the questions are bound to turn to which new faces might join the Reds this summer.
With confirmation yesterday that Jacob Butterfield has signed an extension to his deal, the club must be actively shortlisting potential targets and working on a list of players they wish to retain for the next season or two.
Personally, I would like to see a strong No.2 to Luke Steele brought in and have heard whispers that Sunderland may be looking off-load Márton Fülöp, after a couple of "wilderness" seasons.
The spine of the side also needs some drastic work, but speculation is fairly thin in this respect. Have deals already been done on Le Fondre and Montgomery?
